Hi, I'm Kristen. I'm the former director of the Outdoor Industry Association's Skip Yowell Future Leadership Academy, and a driving force behind the creation and launch of OIA's Outdoor Industry Business Certificate Program. I’ve spent my career at the intersection of education and industry, helping people plan for, pursue, and thrive in meaningful career paths. When I joined the outdoor industry a few years ago, I quickly fell in love with the people, passion, and sense of purpose that make this industry unique. But it's also those qualities that can make designing robust workforce development, leadership education, and employee engagement programs for this community so challenging. I can help.


With 14+ years of combined experience in higher education and the outdoor industry, I help educators and organizations blend the best of both worlds to create high-impact, workforce education and employee development programs that build career ready graduates, stronger leaders, and better workplaces. 

Get in touch and let's explore how I can help you today!
