Introducing Our Staff
Kristin joined the Adair County Family YMCA in April 2016 as the Membership and Wellness Director. In March 2017, she was named the Chief Executive Officer. "It's a great honor to lead such a cause-driven organization, especially one that I grew up in as a kid. I am committed to leading this organization to make an impact for years to come."
In Kristin's free time, she enjoys spending time with her husband, David and trying to keep up with her young children.
Director of Membership and Wellness
I grew up in Southern Illinois and came to Missouri for law school. After graduating from Mizzou School of Law, I practiced law in private practice in Kirksville while teaching fitness classes at the YMCA in my spare time. After 15 years of practicing law, my husband and I were blessed with twin boys. I took some time off with my babies and during that time, I accepted the position as Director of Membership, Wellness and Fitness here at the YMCA and never looked back.
I am passionate about the YMCA and everything we do for children, our members, and our community. In my free time, you can find me busy with my chilren's sports and activities and volunteering as the President of the Kirksville Primary School PTA.
I grew up about 25 miles East of Kirksville in the small town of Edina, Missouri. I attended Knox County High School where I graduated in 2017. Out of high school, I attended North Central Missouri College where I received my Associates of Science Degree. I then furthered my education at Northwest Missouri State University where I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Sports Management. In my free time, I enjoy hunting, fishing, playing sports, and spending time with my family.
I am extremely thankful for the opportunity to work for an organization with such amazing core values. My favorite thing about my job is seeing the smile our programs put on kids’ faces. I am a firm believer in the importance of kids being active and involved, and I will do my best to provide those opportunities.
John grew up in the small town of Queen City, Missouri. In his free time he enjoys woodworking, playing guitar, and riding his motorcycle. John is known as "The Master Chef" of the YMCA and is the first to plan the next carry-in.
