Kristina’s diverse background has created an individual with indispensable capabilities. Growing up in a structured military family took her to many places abroad and allowed her to explore culture and human development. As an adult she broke through the glass ceiling of the rock-and-roll industry to become one of Denver’s first female stagehands, and later, an assistant stage manager at the Fillmore Auditorium. Kristina then left the industry to start a family and focused on motherhood for 15 years. Her love of community and her family inspired her to pursue a degree in Geography with a concentration in sustainability, and to become a consultant for Solar Energy. Kristina and her husband, Patrick, spend time scoping out the best craft beer that Colorado has to offer!
