As Engagement Strategist, Kristin spearheads the integration of engagement and editorial processes to maximize the reach of our reporting and its positive community impact.

She builds pathways for Illinois citizens and organizations to participate in the editorial process through events, educational initiatives, community partnerships, and everyday conversations. From her perspective, there are no greater experts on the issues of Illinois than the state’s diverse, industrious, and passionate citizens.

Affordable housing issues often get media attention when property prices soar due to spiking economic development or when property prices tumble due to dramatic industry decline, but that narrative is incomplete.
