During her career at the bank, Kristen has been very active with local chambers of commerce and is a graduate of the Capital Region Chamber Leadership Tech Valley. In addition to the Electric City Food Co-Op board, she also serves as a member of the Ellis Hospital Foundation Generations Committee.

Why did you join the team at the Electric City Food Co-Op?
I am passionate about supporting Schenectady County and that starts with the health and wellness of its residents. Providing a community grocery store in Downtown Schenectady will help fill a void of fresh and locally sourced food for residents.

What excites you about Schenectady?
Schenectady is such a dynamic city and the revitalization over the last twenty years has added so much. Creating a Co-Op is a piece of the puzzle that makes so much sense and will add to the city in so many positive ways.
