Kristin Jones – Assistant Program Director
Kristin has a bachelor’s degree in mass communications from Ohio State University. She spent several years in health care sales and marketing, and was then transferred to Colorado; a dream of her’s since childhood. Once in Colorado, she became a ski bum and left corporate America to become a professional ski patrol specialist, EMT and also obtained an explosives permit so she could create avalanches before they became a major danger to the public. She volunteered for NAMI for years including working as a co-coordinator of the In Our Own Voice program in Santa Clara, CA. Kristin is now an IOOV (In Our Own Voice) speaker, Connections Facilitator and Peer to Peer Leader in Colorado. She hopes to bring NAMI programs into the state prison systems as mental health is so prevalent among the inmate population there. Kristin loves to travel, is an avid scuba diver and enjoys her first love which is skiing in beautiful Colorado.
