Krista Kelly

Krista has spent much of her time exploring the outdoors since growing up in Maryland surrounded by forests and the beautiful changing seasons. When she moved to Austin in 2016 she became passionate about community-based environmental work and pursued a degree in environmental studies and theatre at Southwestern University. In her undergraduate career, Krista has gained experience in her field by working as a sustainability ambassador on her college campus and as an intern at the Austin Youth River Watch. In these positions, she was provided the opportunity to engage with other passionate locals as a way to network and spread awareness, in order to improve the environmental conditions of Austin. In her free time, Krista enjoys baking, traveling with her partner, and snuggling her two kitties, Gryffin and Moo.
