Kristia grew up in Kansas where she started her 30 year banking career. After moving to Skagit County in 1992 with her husband and young daughter, she not only progressed in her profession but quickly began to volunteer in her new community and recently joined UMS Banking as Vice President of Bank Relationships. Kristia enjoys not only volunteering but mentoring young women as they learn to balance their work-life-community involvement. She is excited to be serving her 2nd term on the Board for Skagit Women’s Alliance Network where she can continue to help recognize and support women’s achievements in Skagit County.
Kristia resides in Burlington, with her husband Brian, where they raised their 2 children, Erin & Davis. When not working, she enjoys outdoor activities, traveling, and volunteering in the community.
