I have known Kristie for almost 20 years and had many opportunities to work with her on various projects and events. The most impactful of which have been those under her leadership with her foundation Eli's Block Party. She is organized, team-oriented, and conscientious of the balance between community and cause. Her talent as a writer gives her an edge in focusing on detail without losing the big picture. She is energetic and intense with a drive to do a job right. It has been a pleasure to know her and to work with her.

I have known Kristie for the past 3 years and have worked with her and her foundation, Eli's Block Party. It has been a pleasure to watch this foundation grow and witness the impact it has on the community and its cause… and all due to Kristie's leadership and drive. She is organized and so good at making time for people and honoring all of our real heroes. It is so important to ensure we are doing all that we can do to help with children’s cancer research and Kristie, personally, is doing beyond her part.

For the past couple of years, I have had an opportunity to work with Kristie and her foundation by volunteering in a variety of ways. She is a quiet leader with an understanding of the delicate nature of volunteerism. She is engaging, motivating, and energetic. Her desire and drive to affect the cause are infectious. She is a true team leader. Her talent in writing and marketing is really what grows the foundation and the outreach. Though keeping up with her is tiring and sometimes intense, I have enjoyed working with her and making a difference in childhood cancer.

Kristie and I have known each other for about six years. We met through her son Eli who was fighting cancer at the time. We joined forces to host car shows to raise money for her foundation that donates to childhood cancer research. Since then, I have watched her foundation grow under her leadership, and I've watched our community respond to her efforts. She is highly organized and is skilled at marketing and media outreach. She is always working, always looking for ways to raise awareness and support for childhood cancer. It's been fun to get to know her and her family and work with them.
