Kirsten manages corporate philanthropy and activism for KEEN, Inc., working to create a movement of people dedicated to preserving our country’s incredible outdoor landscapes. She manages strategic non-profit partnerships, oversees a cyclical grant program called the KEEN Effect, and works to establish fan-based activism campaigns. She grew up in Whitefish, Montana with Glacier National Park as a backyard. Growing up amongst the beauty of Western Montana fostered a love for the outdoors and a burning desire to preserve them. She splits her time outside of Portland Oregon’s city limits climbing, trail running, getting lost in Oregon’s high desert, and serving on the Board of Directors of Oregon Natural Desert Association and The Conservation Alliance.
Kirsten will speak on the panel ‘Never Let a Good Crisis Go To Waste‘ on Saturday, October 15 at 10:00 AM as part of the SHIFT Summit.
