Kristy graduated from St. Norbert College with a BA in Accounting and soon after started her career in the world of public accounting. After taking some time off to raise her kids, Kristy worked for a few start-ups before finding her fit with Filene. While at Filene, she also received her CNAP (Certified Nonprofit Accounting Professional) certification.
Kristy and her husband Brian have three kids who keep them very busy with sports and theater performances. They just sent their eldest off to college and are starting the college search all over again with their middle son. When not working or with the kids, she unwinds by cooking, reading, or reminiscing about the three Guinness world records she was a part of.
