Chief Marketing Officer
My connection is my brother, Derek, a happy young man with Autism who inspires my professional and philanthropic efforts.
Kristyn is the Chief Marketing Officer at the Autism Society of America, the largest grassroots Autism organization in the United States, which serves over 600,000 individuals and families affected by Autism annually. She joined the Autism Society staff after serving on the national Board of Directors for two years, as the organization’s youngest board member, where she also chaired the Marketing Committee. Kristyn also co-founded Make Waves Family Foundation, a nonprofit that supports adults with Autism by funding initiatives focused on neuro-diverse employment, replicable housing models, and social engagement programs to allow Autistic individuals to achieve a happy, quality lifestyle. Kristyn is a Boston College Eagle and alumnus of the Carrol School of Management. Born and raised on the South Shore of Massachusetts, she made her way to California for year-round beach days, where she lives with her husband, Alex and her golden retriever, Mahi.
