  • Entrepreneur
  • Home Base: Catskills

With a Masters Degree in Economics and International Policy and over 15 years working in the financial sector, Kirsten certainly did not set out to become a co-founder and partner in a hospitality company. However, having done everything from set up small rural micro-lending programs in Africa, to advising foreign officials on economic and health policy, to serving for ten years as a Senior Policy Advisor for the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and the US Treasury Department, she was ready for a new challenge.

Over the past four years, Kirsten has eagerly and seamlessly adapted her diverse skill set to Foster Supply Hospitality, bringing a fresh perspective and dedicated spirit to her work. She currently leads all Marketing and Revenue, and is responsible for all in-house purchasing and design. Kirsten also oversees the front desk team and ensures the execution of the couples’ Programming Strategy focused on guest-focused values and local partnerships.
