Board Member

Krystina is a native of Cache Valley. Her passion for helping people has always been strong. She worked

in nursing getting her CNA during summer break, her junior year of high school and worked at Sunshine

Terrace for 4 ½ years. After graduating from high school, she joined the Army National Guard. And

served 8 years as a 92Y (Supply Specialist). After a series of unfortunate events, she found herself

homeless. Trying to find a safe place for her and her children was very hard. Having lived experience,

she looked to find a way to get involved and bring awareness to the causes of homelessness. She

started to reach out to different organizations to find ways she could share her story and be a voice for

the people struggling. She hopes to help educate the community. She hopes to change the stigma

surrounded around “homelessness”. She has served on the Formerly Homeless Committee, and she

also is excited to be on the Board of Directors of the WAB Warming Center and looks forward to the

opportunities ahead. “When you have more than you need, build a bigger table, not a higher fence”.
