Living in San Francisco and working in Advertising was a dream come true for Kirsten who grew up in Portland, OR. Kirsten most recently was at Symantec/Veritas as the Director of Global Marketing Communications. Prior to that, Kirsten worked for numerous years in advertising/branding at agencies such as McCann-Erickson, Saatchi & Saatchi and Berlin Cameron in both San Francisco and New York.  She has worked on a wide variety of brands including Reebok, Hewlett-Packard and Coca-Cola, to name a few.  

Kirsten, a mother of three active boys is actively involved both in the community as well as at her children's schools. She served a a Board member of the Los Altos Children Center Preschool, when her oldest started preschool.  As her family grew and started at Almond Elementary, she jumped in to volunteer both in the classroom as well as co-chairing auctions and the LASD Junior Olympics. She currently serves on the Egan PTA Executive Board.  

On weekends you can find Kirsten sitting on the bleachers, a gym or on the sidelines of a soccer field watching one of her 3 boys.  Or if it's a quiet weekend at the beach with her husband, kids and their dog.  

Kirsten is awed by what the kids at DesignX can design and make and is looking forward to bringing the rich experiences to more kids in the community!
