Program Manager

(608) 448-6432 ext. 102

Kristy has done a little bit of just about everything since starting with the Savanna Institute in 2017. As a member of the Education team, she currently manages the apprenticeship program and the online course development and remains deeply connected to planning the Perennial Farm Gathering. She also developed expertise in Midwestern soils and geomorphology through completing a Master’s in Geography at Michigan State University and a PhD in Geography from UW-Madison. Kristy also wrangles her two young children as her “day job” in Madison, WI and enjoys getting out for walks as much as possible.
