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.

“Biking, canoeing, rafting in the warmer months, snowshoeing, hiking, and bird watching in the cooler months…and no matter what time of year, eating, drinking, and napping by the wood stove is encouraged!”
“We’re back to basics up here – simple works as long as the details are right. That’s our mantra for our guests, our food and our life. It’s about bonfires & s’mores, grass-stained feet and splinters, tractor rides, good food and even better friends.”

“Grab some walking sticks from the tackle room at The DeBruce and go on a hike on the groomed trails through the 600 acres of land available exclusively to the hotel’s guests.”
