Kristin grew up in Central Illinois. She earned a bachelor’s degree from Monmouth College and a master’s degree from Illinois State University. While at Monmouth, she joined Kappa Kappa Gamma (Alpha Deuteron), which sparked her passion for fraternity/sorority life. Between 2005-2011, Kristin served as the FSL advisor at Wichita State University and Western Michigan University before moving to the Indianapolis area. She worked for several years at the North American Interfraternity Conference and led the Membership Experience team at Delta Sigma Phi Headquarters between 2017-2023.
Kristin lives in the Indy area with her husband, Michael, their two young sons, and a clingy yellow lab named Ripley. Kristin enjoys camping with her family, hiking, reading, binging good shows and watching her boys play sports. She is a Purdue fan by marriage, and also follows the Chicago Cubs and Indianapolis Colts, even when it hurts.
