Kristina Robbins

Development & Facilitation

From the hallowed halls of the Ivy League to the beer-stained stages of improv comedy clubs, Kristina’s forte is seeing the connections between seemingly incongruous ideas and fitting them together to make sense. And most likely she’ll cite a study to back up her thesis. Although she is rigorously thorough and disarmingly smart, don’t be fooled. She’s also exquisitely kooky and will catch you off guard with one of the multiple comedic voices that live inside her.

Kristina is also an award winning filmmaker and graduate of AFI’s Directing Workshop for Women whose work has appeared on PBS and A&E.
She has worked as a management consultant for Fortune 500 companies to shape strategic plans and develop best practices in marketing research.
