Kristin’s career is marked by her ability to lead and grow companies – as CEO of Code Fellows, VP of Operations at zulily, and in various executive positions at Amazon.com. She holds Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Industrial Engineering and Operations Research from the Tauber Institute for Global Operations at the University of Michigan, a Master’s degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering from MIT, and a Master’s degree in Business Administration from MIT’s Sloan School of Management through the Leaders for Global Operations program.
Kristin is an active volunteer, serving on academic and non-profit boards including the University of Michigan’s Center for Entrepreneurship masters program and Ada Developers Academy. She is a mentor at TechStars and is on the boards of advisors for several startup companies. Kristin lives outside of Seattle, and during her spare time, she enjoys taking advantage of the nearby lake, most recently learning to wake surf. When it’s too cold for the lake, she can often be found snow skiing.
