Kristy is inspired by the idea that great culture and productive, comfortable working environments bring out the best in people.

  • I’m from  Somerville, MA.

  • My education  Bachelor of Philosophy, UMass Lowell

  • Cats or dogs?  I love both, but my heart is with Team Cat.

  • Coffee or tea?  Tea, earl grey. Hot.

  • Ballpoint or felt tip?  As a leftie, ballpoint means less smudges, usually

  • On my playlist  David Bowie peppered with '90s alternative rock/trip hop

  • Quote that guides me right now  “I must not fear. Fear is the mindkiller. Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.” ~ Dune

  • The craziest thing I’ve ever done  Hike by myself through a jungle on St. John to see old rock carvings without bringing enough water. Whoops!

  • One thing most people don’t know about me  I'm a sucker for a good paranormal story.

  • My personal motto  To quote Bill & Ted: "Be excellent to each other!"

  • Favorite place in the PCA office is  the Prospect Studio basement. That's where all my PCA Halloween party haunted houses have lived.

  • My best vacation  A road trip across Ireland. It was my first solo vacation, and while at the time it seemed kind of scary, it propelled me into a more adventurous and independent mindset. When I came back I applied to work at PCA!
