Kris has worked in the industry over the past decade in a couple different capacities. She started as a live-in parent at a treatment center for adolescent females, alongside her husband- Dave. She loved working in mental health and quickly found that she really enjoyed helping families heal. After working in the home for 4 years, she then moved on to working in admissions and doing outreach with professionals.
Kris has been doing admissions and business development for the past several years and has really enjoyed helping families feel comfortable and accepted, allowing them to do the work that is needed. Kris was raised with four brothers, two older and two younger– and despite all that, still loves working with young men!
Kris was awarded two Gold Presidential Service Awards for her work helping high school students find their passions, through the the Americorps Program. She also produced and developed a Diversity Education curriculum and presented it in elementary schools across Utah for two years. Kris was a founding member and Vice President of the Southern Program Collaborative that includes all programs in the South Eastern region of NATSAP. Kris serves on the Evolving Women board as well, and enjoys spreading the message of empowering women.
Kris enjoys photography, the outdoors (water of any kind), traveling and seeing new things; but most of all being with her husband, three daughters, and two dogs.
