About Kristyn

Kristyn joined the RecSports team in January 2019 as the Rockne Memorial Building & Special Events Manager. Kristyn believes that campus recreation has the distinct ability to bring out the best in every person that walks through our doors and that it does not matter what kind of day someone has had, it always gets better when they step into our facilities. Originally from Indianapolis, Indiana, Kristyn enjoys training, competing, and volunteering with US Masters Swimming. Kristyn also loves traveling, hiking and camping, attending professional and collegiate sports games, and watching as many Pittsburgh Pirates and Penguins games as she possibly can.
