Hi, I'm Krista and I believe design impacts every moment we live. I am an experienced product leader in strategy, design, and code.

I'm passionate about building meaningful products that deeply care about the human experience. I discover the motivations behind why someone uses a product or service, and use those emotions as north stars to build technology solutions. I partner with startups to advise on all things product, design, and technology. My enthusiasm for product and entrepreneurship was born at Penn State's College of Information Technology, where I finished at the top of my class as Student Marshal.
