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 career education, leadership training, and experiential learning programs for this community so challenging. I can help.


With 13+ years of combined experience in higher education and the outdoor industry, I help educators blend the best of both worlds to create high-impact, industry-aligned education and co-curricular programs that produce career-ready graduates.

Get in touch and let's explore how I can help your program today.
