Board Vice Chair

Kristin brings to client engagements years of experience both inside non-profit and profit-based organizations, and as an external consultant.  Recently, she led the rebranding and marketing communication efforts, strategic planning process, and creation and expansion of the development function as the first-ever Vice President of Operations at the Immigrants’ Assistance Center in New Bedford, MA.


Key accomplishments include:

  • Led staff restructure resulting in 20% productivity increase. Devised and implemented employee retention measures that retained specialized resources during a tight labor market. Directly supervised, recruited, coached and/or promoted four diverse leaders; raised $5,500 for their professional development.

  • Modernized and created new internal workflow systems including overhaul of accounting system that reduced errors and provided more transparency; created first-ever Board-approved budget (and managed operations to meet it); tracked revenue and expenses to programs for first time in 50 years; identified need for and retained auditor which ensured non-profit compliance.

  • Increased revenue an average of 29% annually for 139% growth over four years by increasing dollar amount of individual donations by 215% and foundation and corporate giving by 283%.


Prior to her IAC engagement, she was Owner and Project Manager of Fathom Holdings, which provided business consulting services to real estate and renewable energy clients with a focus on Board development, human resources, legislative policy advocacy, and community outreach. 


Kristin was Assistant Manager of Paralegals at the Boston office of Hale and Dorr LLP (now Wilmer Hale).  She was promoted several times, ultimately responsible for recruiting college graduates with an interest in attending law school to become Litigation Assistants.  She recruited staff, directed workflow, and created the firm’s first-ever professional development program for 20 entry-level paralegals to acclimate the young hires to organization culture, and set them up for success within the firm and as future lawyers.  


Early in her career, Kristin was a Business and Philanthropy Analyst at The Cullinane Group in Boston where she analyzed businesses and organizations for investment recommendations to the president. 

Kristin holds an MBA in Business Administration from the University of Massachusetts Boston, and a BA from Gordon College.
