Learn more about Kristie
Kristie was born and raised in Sunnyvale, California and received her B.A. in Psychology from the University of Montana. Her beginnings in this field started at an early age. Her mom owned a home day care where she welcomed many children with varying abilities over the years. In elementary school Kristie volunteered to work in the Resource Room. Trailers were set up in the field and all kids regardless of their level of ability were taught in those rooms. The need for advocacy became apparent at this young age as she questioned teachers and the principal as to why her friends couldn’t be in the same classroom as everyone else. In Junior High and High School she volunteered for Parks and Recreation in Sunnyvale teaching ballet and gymnastics to kids with varying abilities. At the University of Oregon, Kristie worked at Disability Services, helping to make the campus a place where everyone was treated equally and enjoyed the same opportunities. Prior to coming to Full Access Kristie worked 14 years at Alvord-Taylor in varying positions. She is very excited to continue to help people become integrated into their communities and to teach the community how to be inclusive for all. Kristie’s favorite color is yellow. If she were an animal, she would be a tiger. She can saran wrap the heck out of anything and make it leak proof – and she always finds the silver lining in any situation!
