Throughout the year we will be shining the spotlight on various wonderful and talented ASTD LA volunteers. Currently the stage belongs to Kristen Magnuson.
We thank Kristen for pulling Triple-Duty Volunteerism on the board of ASTD LA. Kristen came onboard as Co-Director of Learning, filling what is normally a two-director role by herself. That wasn’t enough. Kristen stepped up to fill the vacant Director of Chapter Meetings seat as well.
We’re proud to announce that in recognition of Kristen’s hard work and devotion, she has been awarded free admission to an ASTD National certificate program in 2013. Congratulations, Kristen!
Kristen came to serve on the board of ASTD LA after founding and launching the Social Enterprise Alliance, LA. She has a B.A. in Philosophy, a J.D. and has completed the chapter's Train the Trainer program. She is the founder of The Advancement Center, an organization devoted to removing blocks to success both individually and in organizations. She is a pioneer in applying energy psychology tools in team building, facilitation and training so clients can drop learned limitations to success. Currently, Kristen serves as the Director of Learning as well the Director of Chapter Events. She is grateful for the opportunity to further her lifelong interests in collective success and collaboration. She sees these roles as demonstrating her motto "Together We're Better."
