Kristin Herstrom is the Special Events Director at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Bellevue, and has been with the organization since 2008. Kristin began as a Program Staff for Project Learn at Stevenson Elementary, before she shortly stepped into the role as the Site Director at Stevenson and later moving to the newly rebuilt, Eastside Terrace. Kristin found to have the biggest impact during her time working with the drop-out prevention program, BE GREAT! Graduate, located at our Teen Center in Lake Hills. She found working closely with Bellevue School District as well as other community programs a wonderful experience and very important in the academic success of the youth we serve. Special Events have always held a special place in Kristin’s heart, she even describes our annual Auction as ‘magical’ making her very excited for her newest adventure at Boys & Girls Club as the Special Events Director.
Kristin and her fiancé recently purchased a house in their hometown and began the journey of puppy parenthood, welcoming their Labrador Retriever, Lola to their family in December 2018. In their spare time, you can find the three of them enjoy the outdoors, attending and watching all Seattle sports teams and traveling internationally as much as possible- oh, and planning their October 2019 wedding!
