"Healing Young Lives Through Artistic Expression"
Krista is an active mentor and volunteer for the  role model and advocate forFree Arts Minnesota. The organization gives children who have experienced trauma, a way to release emotion, learn to build trusting relationships with adults, empower them to believe in their own abilities and to recognize how unique and special each individual is to the world.

She believes in creativity and art as a means of therapeutic healing. When a child enters a place of freedom with limitless expression and no judgment, no right or wrong answer, it lets them explore themselves. It gives them a sense of hope for their future and allows them to see their community in a safer, more peaceful, trusting light. Krista advocates for the healing powers of art and creative play in order to enhance lives.
