2018 KSUCPM Student of the Year Award

Nomination Quote:

“Being around Kristen is inspiring. It is literally insane all of the things she does in a day – most of which are for other people. She doesn’t need her name on a plaque or to get recognized and I would personally see that so many times – she would never hesitate to serve others at the sacrifice of her time or energy if it meant it would be bettering someone else. She has a servant’s heart which epitomizes her leadership ability all the more.”

More about Kristen:

Kristen has represented Kent on a national level as an APMSA delegate and she now represents all podiatry students as the President of the APMSA. She has also returned to her undergraduate university multiple times to speak about and on behalf of podiatry, raising awareness.

You can find Kristen in various places academically, but you’ll also find her on the soccer field scoring goals, on the basketball court drowning shots, running marathons, and even volunteering at the Special Olympics!
