Hello! My name is Kristina and I’m a new Membership Director at the Boston College Club. I grew up in Needham, MA and have been living in Boston for the past five years. I graduated from Sacred Heart University where I played Division 1 tennis and got my master’s degree in Sports Management from the University of New Haven. I fell in love with membership sales working at the Healthworks Fitness Center in Back Bay for a few years and am so excited to continue membership sales here at the BC Club. I have a passion for creating a positive impact on others and staying active. I enjoy skiing, hiking, traveling, cooking with my boyfriend, teaching tennis, spending time with my family and friends, being at Lake Winnipesauke, and learning to play disc golf!
