Krissy is local to the Central PA area. She grew up in New Cumberland and went to James Madison to compete in track and field and study social work. She then went to the University of Pittsburgh to get her Master’s degree in Social Work. Two weeks after graduation, Krissy started as the Network Director of Family Promise in 2010. Family Promise has been an incredible journey and learning experience. Krissy has been challenged and enjoyed watching as the program expands and grows through many people’s hard work, dedication, partnership, and trial and error. She is passionate about meeting people where they are at, helping them to see their own strengths, and then learning to use those strengths to meet goals. Watching a person learn to trust themselves is one of the most enjoyable experiences in the world for her.
Krissy lives in Mechanicsburg with her loving husband, Matt, and high-energy puppy, Dexter Dog. They attend First UMC in Mechanicsburg where Krissy serves on the Evangelism committee. She also coaches track and field at Red Land High School.
