For over three years, Kristy has been a tireless champion for Freshwater Future as the President of our Board of Directors. We’ve benefited greatly from Kristy’s passion and dedication in many ways. She developed a process for evaluation and improvement of the board’s effectiveness, improved the way we recruit and engage new board members, and led the organization’s renewal through a strategic planning process. Under Kristy’s leadership, the Board has grown and developed into a sophisticated structure that supports the growth of Freshwater Future.
In her job at the Ohio Environmental Council, Kristy and her team are at the heart of the fight against toxic algal blooms. They are busy proposing solutions, educating residents, and convincing elected officials to take action to restore the health of Lake Erie.
Kristy also works on a number of the other issues we hold dear, including keeping invasive Asian carp out of the Great Lakes, protecting water supplies under the Great Lakes Compact, and ensuring ongoing financial support for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative.
No wonder Kristy is up with the sun each morning. We will miss her on the board but look forward to working with her on all things
