While serving as Regional Director for RPT Volunteer Engagement and Victory 2020, a program which registered over 200,000 Texas Republican voters, Kristi set personal goals to facilitate conservative leadership development for young adults. As Director of Youth Programs, Kristi will organize events, including a first Texas Youth Leadership Camp, to help young people identify the genius of America and commit to the responsibilities of being a “good” citizen in a democratic republic. Kristi is a District Director for TFRW for Senate District 1 and lives in Northeast Texas.
