Kristin specializes in strategic planning and change management, with a focus on organizational culture, implementable solutions, and measurable outcomes. Most recently, Kristin served as a senior consultant supporting the New Mexico Public Education Department’s Information Technology Division in its organizational transformation, with a goal of better aligning its people, practices, and tools to the needs of the state’s education community.
On previous projects, Kristin led the Syracuse City School District during a two-year engagement to implement the EdStat performance management model to build a culture and practice of performance and accountability in the district. She also led the development of a three-year Strategic Plan for the School District of Lee County (Florida), garnering high levels of community participation and stakeholder input. She has consulted with the District of Columbia Public School’s Office of Special Education (OSE) on organizational transformation and was instrumental in guiding OSE through a strategic planning process, which resulted in specific and actionable projects for implementation over the next four years. On both projects, Kristin coordinated and consolidated the input of various stakeholders, developed alternatives, and guided agency staff in determining a feasible and effective approach to achieve their stated goals. Kristin is a certified city planner with over 20 years of experience working with diverse stakeholders to arrive at consensus toward a shared goal.
