Kristin tends to our day-to-day operations, connecting with vendors, supporting staff, and managing our donor database. She loves to find ways our data and systems can better serve our work; she is passionate about how data can help HFJ connect and live out our organizational values. A former congregational organizer, Kristin brings over ten years’ experience in nonprofits and social justice organizations and a great dedication to equity, collective liberation, and relationships to her work.
Kristin grew up in northern Minnesota and after some time living in Lillehammer, Norway and Chicago, she settled in North Minneapolis in 2013. It’s where she lives today with her wife, whose name is also Kristen, and their sweet pandemic puppy, Willow. Dog training is one of Kristin’s beloved hobbies and she is teaching Willow to talk using buttons. Conversations about “squirrel,” “ball,” and “park” fill their days with joy. You can often find Kristin next to water and trees in the city or in the woods.
