A native of Atlanta, Georgia, Kristen has an extensive business and educational background as well as an entrepreneurial drive that has lead to the formation of two companies. Her vast and varied experiences include business-to-business sales, English as a Second Language (ESL) instruction and international volunteer work.

Kristen graduated from Florida A&M University in 2005 with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and Spanish minor, and in 2013, completed her MBA from the Georgia Institute of Technology Scheller College of Business, where Pentorship won the Ideas 2 Serve Best Domestic Solution Prize.

Kristen joined the Weyerhaeuser Company, a forestry products company and real estate investment trust, as an account executive with their Containerboard packaging and recycling division. She then went on to volunteer in Iquique, Chile as an ESL instructor with the United Nations Development Programme’s Chilean Ministry of Education program “Ingles Abre Puertas” before moving on to Incheon, South Korea to teach English.

During her tenure abroad, Kristen engaged in freelance work with small businesses in the U.S. while learning much about microenterprises in both South America and Asia. From those experiences, she was inspired to develop creative ways to use her expanded knowledge and skillset to make social change domestically.
