Kristi has been a BHMS parent since 2013 and now has three children at the school in 2nd, 5th, and 7th grades. A former public defender with the Legal Aid Society in Brooklyn, Kristi co-founded a local cooperative preschool group where she worked closely with neighborhood parents and early childhood educators to help develop the program there. Though she is primarily home with her kids, most recently Kristi has spent time developing music education programming with several after-school and summer groups. Kristi holds a B.A. in mathematics from the University of Rochester, a B.M. in music education from the Eastman School of Music, and a J.D. from St. John’s University School of Law. This is Kristi’s fifth year on the board, where she co-chairs the Committee on Trustees and serves on the Institutional Advancement Committee.
