Previously, Krista worked in a wide variety of organizational contexts from an automotive manufacturing employee relations department to a large hospital training and development group where she taught management development. Additional roles she has played include social research in a university setting, HR consulting, and project team leadership. The common thread in all these roles has been organizational development; creating business systems, improving communications, and facilitating the work of employees at all levels of companies of diverse size and mission. She has helped engage employees in ways that promote their individual success while achieving positive results for the organization. Krista brings her track record for understanding how to adapt practices to fit divergent needs to the film production life-cycle from pre-production through post-production. She will play a special role with investors during the production phase as a liaison for those interested in participating in any way in the making of the film. Krista brings this consulting expertise to her role as Business Manager for Bombshell Studios where she applies her skills to maximize the likelihood that people in the film industry with very diverse talents are successful in working together for the good of each creative project.
Krista has a Master of Arts in Communication Studies with a focus on Organizational Communication from the University of North Carolina and a BS in Forestry from Clemson University. Krista wrote her thesis on communication & quality improvement practices of an organization jointly owned by employees and consumers. This provided a unique perspective on the concept of joint ownership which she brings to the collaboration of movie makers.
