Kris arrived at Deerfield in the fall of 1994 as an athletic trainer. She began teaching in the science department in the spring of 1995. She is a resident of Pocumtuck Dorm, and loves it; she also supervises the Peer Counselors, and enjoys every minute of that, too. Anatomy is her passion, and the great discussions in Health Issues keep her young. Kris says her two children, Parker, and Abby, and her wonderful husband, Christopher, keep her spirit and energy alive.
