Kris is a social change professional dedicated to providing a voice to the silent and a path for the lost. Having been in and out of the criminal justice system, Kris had struggled with addiction and was oppressed by her own afflictions for over 15 years. Today, she uses her faith for guidance and her story to provide inspiration.

With Kris’ pre-incarceration professional experience in business systems administration and human resources she was able to quickly work her way up from a peer advocate position to a program compliance coordinator for a major nonprofit organization serving the homeless in San Francisco. She brings experience in workforce development, housing and organizational compliance and is well versed in business systems implementation, administration and HR operations.

Kris is passionate about changing the criminal justice system and focused on assisting reentry community members. Her desire to be a part of change and the re-education of the way society views the world and its members is her driving force.
