Kristin found Namasté Solar by luck through a staffing agency. She loved being part of the Namasté team and took a full-time position as soon as one was available. Getting to be part of such a good group of people was a big draw for her, as well as Namasté Solar’s work in renewables. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Human Resources from Park University and brings more than eight years of experience in the HR field. Kristin currently works remotely from Kansas City, where she moved to be closer to her family. She is passionate about her cat; volunteers at the library; and likes yoga, hiking, board games, gardening, reading and KC Royals baseball. Go Royals!
