Hey there, I'm Kris, and I'm excited to be nominated for the role of President-elect at BAPA.
I've had some early success in my career, including my current position as an Executive Producer collaborating with movie studios and streaming channels. I’ve been fortunate enough to spend the past 20 years working with some of the world’s biggest brands at the forefront of marketing. That said, my professional journey commenced with a focus on nonprofit endeavors. Even as my professional lens has shifted, I’ve carried on contributing positively to the community. As a devoted volunteer, I've continued to actively engage with benevolent community-building organizations donating my time, resources, and abilities whenever possible.
Over the past five years, I’ve found a new passion that I want to explore more deeply: pickleball. I've made some incredible friendships on the court and even managed to hone in my dink shots while introducing new players to the game. My foray into the world of organized sports began during childhood, where I distinguished myself as a hockey player, eventually competing nationally at the collegiate level. This lifelong dedication to athletics instilled in me the values of teamwork, discipline, and perseverance—attributes that will shape my approach to leading BAPA.
Pickleball, for me, is a blend of all these experiences. It's not just a sport; it's a way to bring people together, to bridge gaps, and to have a ton of fun. As BAPA President, my aim is to fuse my digital marketing expertise with my community-driven approach. Imagine a mix of strategic growth, raising awareness, and inclusivity within the Boise area pickleball community.
I've seen firsthand how sports can be a catalyst for positive change, and I'm determined to make pickleball a cornerstone of our community. Whether you're a seasoned player or just getting started, I want pickleball to be your game of choice. Together, let's create a new chapter for sports and community through BAPA.
