Krista joined the Junior League in 2019 to follow her passions of both supporting women’s development and giving back to local communities in a meaningful way. Although she currently lives in southern New Jersey, Krista joined the Wilmington league due to its intimate size that allows members to truly build connections and make an impact. During her initial year, Krista was an active member of the Communications Committee and the Diversity and Inclusion Taskforce, and is now honored to take on the role of assistant treasurer for the 2020/21 league year.
As a mother of two young daughters, the mission of the Junior League and notion of women’s development is very personal for Krista. She is a strong advocate of women helping women and has a long history of mentoring, coaching and sponsoring others in their professional and personal development. She is a student of mindfulness and has enjoyed the opportunity to share her learnings and practice as she is experiencing them herself. Professionally, Krista’s background is in retail and foodservice operations. She has been employed at Starbucks for 14 years, where she is currently a vice president of operations, leading a dispersed team of business consultants in supporting the licensed stores across the northern tier of the US.
Krista is a graduate of Franklin and Marshall College with a BA in sociology. She has lived with her daughters, husband Brian, and several pets in Mullica Hill, NJ for the past 11 years. Together they enjoy traveling, live music, and discovering good wines.
