Social Media Maven
As AVP’s resident social media marketing guru and ‘Jill-of-all-trades,’ Kris enjoys helping businesses flourish. She graduated from Youngstown State University with a degree in electrical engineering, eventually leaving the profession to become a domestic engineer (stay-at-home mom) and care for her young kids. During this time, she gained mad skills in multitasking, creative problem-solving, planning, entertaining, and staying focused on the ‘big picture’ in every situation.
When she isn’t working, Kris loves spending time with her ever-growing family, volunteering with The Montessori School of the Mahoning Valley and Philanthropic Educational Organization (P.E.O.), life-planning with her adorable and unpredictable husband, trail running with her loyal dog, living the simple life in Cook Forest, and taking magical family vacations in Walt Disney World with Chris and their children, Hayden and Audrey.
