Kristen has been working with the Strategic Gifts team since 2018. Prior to her current position, she worked primarily in higher education in a variety of areas including undergraduate and graduate admissions, international marketing and recruitment, orientation and service-learning.  She loves working with University Advancement to keep alumni and friends of JMU engaged and connected to philanthropic opportunities… opportunities that help open doors for students and faculty that wouldn’t otherwise be possible.

Kristen is originally from the Philadelphia area and enjoys road trips back to PA to spend time with family. She also enjoys working closely with the Charlottesville Alumni Chapter, volunteering with Kilaurwen Winery and the SPCA, and hiking/biking around the Shenandoah Valley.
