Kristin is a recent graduate of New England College of Optometry. Originally from New Jersey, she studied biology at Boston College, then moved to New Mexico where she volunteer-taught first and second grade before beginning NECO in 2009. During her time at NECO, she was president of SVOSH, the student chapter of Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity, an international organization devoted to providing sustainable eye care internationally.
Kristin valued her time at NECO especially for always being treated as a colleague by faculty, for the home-like environment that was at once comforting and challenging, and for the close friendships she formed there. She is currently in a community health residency in Boston.
