Kristen Paris

Director of Operations


Every orchestra needs a conductor, and Kristen is ours. As Director of Operations, Kristen identifies ways to hone the efficiency of the company’s internal operations to facilitate development and long-term success. In other words, she makes certain Pinnacle and all its moving parts and players stay in perfect harmony with one another.

Kristen actually began her career as a graphic designer with a degree in Advertising, Design & Illustration. During her 17 years with Pinnacle, she has worn many hats, and today proudly describes herself as “an employee advocate” who helps individuals grow to reach their highest potential.

Outside of the office, Kristen enjoys camping with her family, gardening and cooking. She’s also a huge fan of inspirational quotes, including “If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you.” 

Sound advice, to be sure.
