Previous Experience

Prior to joining Clarus, Kristie served as executive director of two Birmingham-based nonprofit organizations for a combined total of over 15 years. That experience gave her valuable insight into the unique challenges and opportunities that confront mission-driven organizations, including governance, board development, board/staff relations, volunteer recruitment and fund development.
