Kristy Adams, director of marketing and communication, joined Project Angel Heart in November. Since then, she’s been helping tell Project Angel Heart’s story. To learn more of her story, we asked her hard-hitting, rapid-fire questions.
Skittles or M&Ms? Skittles
Describe yourself in three words. Cheerful, optimistic, stubborn
What’s a piece of advice you would give your 20-year-old self? Slow down and always make time for the people you love.
What’s your favorite place you have ever been? Too many to choose just one!
Fork or spoon? Fork
Walk, jog, or run? Walk (but, usually fast)
What’s the last book that you read? Principles of Qualitative Research (a definite page turner and available for loan!)
On a vacation, itinerary or open-ended? Start with an itinerary and stay open to suggestions from locals and other travelers
Do you have any pets? Yes, a very sweet, but mischievous, golden retriever
East Coast or West Coast? West Coast
What’s been your best volunteer experience? I organized a large group and we helped build a mountain bike trail in memory of my husband.
What is your favorite movie? To Kill a Mockingbird or Rear Window
If you could relive any year of your life, what age would you be? I don’t think I’d go back. I’ve loved my life and am grateful for the new experiences brought by each new day.
Are you allergic to anything? No
Beatles or Rolling Stones? Beatles. I’m not the biggest Rolling Stones fan. In high school, some friends and I would make each other laugh by doing impressions of Mick Jagger singing Angie.
Do you have any hidden talents? Many
Sweet or Savory? Indeed. That is my constant breakfast conundrum!
Ocean or mountains? Mountains. No, ocean. No, mountains.
Sandals, shoes, boots, socks or barefoot? Barefoot
What’s your guilty pleasure? Listening to Jim Croce, Gordon Lightfoot, Carole King, James Taylor, America, CCR, The Moody Blues, etc. It was the background music of my home growing up.
What are you most excited for at Project Angel Heart? To be part of this great team—from donors, to volunteers, to staff—doing really important work
What else would you like volunteers to know about you? I’m so grateful for what you help us accomplish each and every day!
