Before EPS, Krissy spent twenty years as an educator in one form or another holding titles such as teacher, technical assistant specialist, school Board Member, outdoor educator, teaching assistant, and tutor. No stranger to independent schools, Krissy was previously a faculty member at Colorado Rocky Mountain School in Carbondale, Colorado, where she taught science and math and served as a student advisor.

In her free time, Krissy enjoys long hikes in nature, connecting with people on a deep level, and figuring out how to minimize her impact on the planet. She is also mom to three energetic kids.

“There is nothing more exciting to me than working with young people to empower them to reach their highest potential. EPS students represent the future of our world and middle school is a critical time for their development.”
