Admissions & Development Coordinator
An accomplished fundraiser, Kristin has more than a decade of nonprofit experience in raising private dollars from individuals, corporations, foundations and philanthropic organizations. She has effectively led board committees in public relations and fund development. As a parent to an Odyssey student and a tour guide for admissions, Kristin is excited to see on a daily basis the commitment among Odyssey teachers to guide and support students in learning deeply about themselves and the world around them.
After earning two degrees from College of Charleston, one in English Literature and the other in Sociology, Kristin helped to land nationally acclaimed educational exhibits with the Columbia Museum of Art (in South Carolina) and then later worked for the Smithsonian Institute’s Museum on Main Street. In 2008, Kristin and her husband moved to Fairview where, during the recession years, she doubled membership, surpassed revenue goals, and secured legacy gifts for Carolina Mountain Land Conservancy (CMLC) in Hendersonville. She has additional certification in fundraising and professional writing.
