Operations and Development Administrator

Kristi’s smile is bottled sunshine and her gifts for organization and her ability to engage people perfectly fit her role as Big Table’s volunteer coordinator and administrative lead for Seattle. She comes to our team with a background in non-profit leadership and a Bachelor of Science in Dietetics and a Minor in Religious Studies from the University of California Davis.

Great red wine, strong coffee (black), and an engaging book make Kristi happy. Bribes of salted caramels or chocolate will always be seriously considered. A lottery win would immediately bring out the passport with both Turkey and New Zealand on the list of places yet to visit. As is very nearly a job requirement with Big Table, cooking is a passion and quality ingredients make the meal for Kristi, her husband Neil, and their two kids.
