President/CEO

I’m proud to call Kris-Tech “home,” and to contribute to our ever-growing family here. Though I grew up in the business, prior to joining the team full-time I worked in finance, got a Masters’ Degree in ancient history and languages, and taught high-school Latin (all perfect preparation for a career in wire!), and have competed in multiple Ironman triathlons. I’m fortunate to work with and support amazing people, and to help create an environment of collaboration, purpose, and fulfillment. My wife and two girls, reading and learning, fitness, and travel keep me fully engaged outside of work.

My wife and I have two dogs who we enjoy going on walks with to the lake and are our co-pilots when we go on travel adventures. I love to travel – it allows me to combine my passions: experiencing new places, taking in architecture and discovering new foods. A “bucket list” goal of ours is to visit all the National Parks – my favorite so far has been Glacier. To make it through the long upstate NY winters I turn my attention to rooting for SU basketball. I’m a naturally competitive person and swam competitively from elementary school through college. My main events were in middle distance freestyle and team relays.

I grew up near Phoenix, NY and graduated from SUNY Cortland with a BA in Sociology. I moved to the Mohawk Valley Region of CNY in 2009 and threw myself into becoming an active and engaged member of the greater community. As an alum of CNY Roller Derby (go Blue Collar Betties!), I got involved with some local community action agencies. Dearest to me is the LGBTQ+ Youth Services Team for ACR Health, and in 2018 I was honored as a volunteer of distinction. Professionally, I spent 10 years digging deep into SAP; with functions ranging from customer care to logistics to material master data. I live in Paris Station, NY with my husband Forrest, and our dogs Otis (Catahoula leopard hound) and Bean (schipperke mutt). I love to garden, kayak, collect vinyl records, and work on the restoration and updates of our c.1880 colonial home.
