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!

Joined the Boston College Club as Executive Chef November 2017.

Growing up in Germany, he learned how to cook in France and Switzerland out of a strong passion for hospitality. From early on he understood that a truly memorable dining experience is always the sum of its parts – service, ambience, creativity, food, beverage and of course human interaction – and that all are equally important.

Coming to the United States in 1994 Chef Stefan further developed and strengthened his culinary skills within high-end and luxury hotels and restaurants including Ritz Carlton, Fairmont and Loews properties throughout North America. His last position was executive chef at Top of the Hub restaurant.

Outside of work he enjoys nature in all its forms, creativity in general, photography and entertaining close friends and family.
