Krissy is a creative problem solver passionate about community-led social impact. After completing her undergraduate degree in Global Studies, she joined the Peace Corps as a Health Education Volunteer in Tanzania. This was her initial introduction to a human-centered approach to problem solving. After completing her service, Krissy received her graduate degree in public policy with a focus on conflict/conflict resolution.

Seeing the potential for technology to accelerate social and economic development, she began studying UX.
