Kristen grew up in New England and Colorado.  She graduated as an Elementary Education major from Saint Mary’s College in 1994.  Upon moving to South Bend in 2006, she became the founder and owner of Bushels of Fun - her own gift basket business, and began work at Notre Dame in 2011, first serving in Facilities, Design, and Operations working in Utilities and Maintenance.  This was followed by a move to University Relations in 2017, where she worked as the Reunion Office Assistant in the Alumni Association. This position transitioned to a more permanent role as Event Coordinator - joining the Special Events team to host Football Fridays, Leadership Conferences, and Reunions annually.  

Kristen is the very proud mother of seven wonderful children.  She is a Notre Dame parent; she is never lacking a funny story about life with a big family!  She is passionate about laughter, travel, faith, and friendship.  When she is not visiting with friends, family or exploring the world, she loves to curl up with a good book, cook a delicious meal, and try new things.
