Kristen White is our new Event Manager and Access Coordinator
Kristen will be in charge of our informal spaces (i.e. McShain, Reynolds, etc.) and outdoor venues, and address all accessibility concerns. She will also be in charge of summer conferences and supervise our student staff.
She discovered her passion for arts and performances as a child. While growing up in Silver Spring, Maryland, Kristen shadowed her mother who was the choir director at her community’s church. She also attended a lot of concerts as a teenager.
Before coming to GU, Kristen worked as a Stage and Production Manager in Baltimore and as Event Production Coordinator here in D.C.
She has always liked to organize events that bring people from different backgrounds together. That is why Kristen enjoys working on campus, surrounded by folks that are defining who they are while getting a degree.
