Just a few notes about Kristi that she thinks are important for you to know:

  • Believes in "theatre-done-well" and speaks often as a guide for educational and community theatre directors everywhere. 

  • Is certified to teach the Enneagram Spectrum Method 

  • Holds a license as a Creative Success Coach and Executive Communication Coach from International Coach Federation (ICF), and she is licensed in both areas, working with clients from around the world to help them find success. 

  • Is Credentialed as Certified Non-Profit Executive (CNE), Certified Development Executive (CDE), and a Certified Non Profit Consultant (CNC) through NANOE (National Association of Nonprofit Organizations & Executives) and serves as Senior Counselor for DSI (Development Systems International) and PAX Global.​ 

  • Is a certified yoga instructor.

  • Graduated from Arkansas State University with a Master’s and Bachelor’s degree in Communication and Theatre and remains an active Red Wolves fan. 


She has six kids, all with her husband, Kevin.  They are each pretty awesome, in her opinion, although she does see her therapist once a month to process all the "stuff".


She believes that God guides her steps and will yours, as well, if you choose it.


Kristi served for 8 years as Executive Director plus a previous 6 years on the Executive Team, for The Foundation of Arts, a non profit in Northeast Arkansas, that serves thousands in her community through the arts. It was one of few arts organizations that served during the Covid crisis and grew stronger as a result of her leadership, amazing staff, and passionate volunteers.  She still serves the organization as Artistic Director and Consultant.
