As a Lewis County native, Kristen didn't hesitate to make the move back home when she had the opportunity! As the Director of Tourism, Kristen works to make Lewis County a recreation destination; bringing external dollars into the local economy to benefit our community.
Following her studies at Paul Smith's College, Kristen spent a decade traveling and working across the globe. This travel allowed Kristen to gain the experiences necessary to grow away from home, and return to Lewis County with a checklist of items to make our lives better.
Aside from growing our community, Kristen is deeply passionate about revealing the hidden gems and unique aspects of Lewis County, even for locals who may not be aware of them. She is an advocate for promoting diversity in local businesses, aiming to enrich the county's economic landscape. Kristen is a dedicated Board member of both the Adirondack Regional Tourism Council and the United Way of Northern New York. She finds great joy in spending quality time with friends and family, often embracing unique and spontaneous adventures together. Kristen currently resides in Glenfield with her husband, Jason, two sons, Rhys and Jaxon, and their dog, Marley.
