Thanks Kristen!

Whether you were a volunteer or a participant, many of you interacted with our Romp support staff Kristen Strand (better know at the Romp events as the “girl with the green snow pants”!). Today was Kristen’s last day with the Romp–as she’s decided to go back to school. We’re sad to see her go, but excited for her new adventure.

Kristen started as an intern for the 2009 event and as the Romp grew, we were excited to have her role grow with us! Many of you interacted with her through participant questions and volunteer coordination and know first-hand how organized, patient, and articulate she is.

I asked Kristen about how many participants she emailed with over the course of last year’s event and she estimated more than 1,000! She had never-ending energy that made the Romp events a true success.

If you interacted with her this last season, feel free to comment on this post (or the Facebook link) with some encouragement or a big thank you for all her hard work!

Think you might have what it takes to fill Kristen’s shoes? The Romp keeps growing and we’re hiring contract support staff to make sure our 2012 events (and 10th Anniversary!) are the best yet! Click here for open positions.

Thanks for a great Romp Season Kristen! We wish you the best
