Before joining the Michigan Virtual team, Krista earned undergraduate and graduate degrees at Eastern Michigan University. From there, she went on to teach at both the secondary and postsecondary levels. One of the things that Krista most enjoys about teaching is being able to help students reach their academic potential. Currently, she is an assistant director for the Instructional Product Development team. In this role, even though she is no longer teaching, she is still able to influence student success by helping to develop quality courses that cater to diverse learners. In Krista’s free time, she enjoys spending time in nature, reading a good book or relaxing at the lake.
