Kristin oversees the EAB Daily Briefing, so she spends her time writing, editing, setting content strategy, and collaborating with project partners across EAB. Kristin was the founding editor of the publication, and she's enjoyed the grand adventure of building it from the ground up. In that time, she's grown particularly interested in topics related to diversity and inclusion, career development, and mental health.
Kristin knows that education has the power to change lives because it was a college writing course (The Little Red Schoolhouse) that ignited her interest in the psychology of communication and set her on the path to marketing. Outside the office, she continues pursuing her love of language and stories in film, television, radio, podcasts, books, art, board games, and whatever else she can get her hands on. Kristin is also active in diversity and inclusion initiatives within EAB and serves as a Vice Chair of the Healthy Minds Employee Resource Group.
Kristin earned a B.A. in Philosophy from Mercer University, where she served as Assistant Editor of The Dulcimer Literary & Arts Magazine. She earned an M.A. in Humanities (with a focus on philosophy of ethics) from the University of Chicago.
