5 Step Growth Garden for Artists and Idealists- Kristen Palana

Kristen is responsive and connects easily with students. An online format presents unique challenges, but Kristen has shown that she dominates the online space, offering engaging webinars and thoughtful forum posts.

We appreciate all that Kristen has contributed to the UPEACE Centre and look forward to continued work with her in the future!

Kristen possesses a breadth and depth of experience in the classroom, as Chair of Department and serving on the main committees in support of the university.

This, alongside her dedication to her students, her energy and quiet determination, and her engaging and attractive creative work, makes her a great asset to any educational institution she is associated with.

Andrew Thompson

Former Executive Vice President and Provost, The American University of Rome

Kristen and I met in Moshi, Tanzania after my departure from Wellpoint. We worked together helping a small educational facility improve their business, through development of a web site and supporting materials. Kristen’s international expertise in developing countries was a great help.

After Tanzania I joined Kristen in her philanthropic efforts at which she founded and our partnership has been great!

I have worked with Kristen on a professional level and known her on a personal level. She is efficient, professionally talented and a pleasure to work with and know.

Kristen will go above and beyond to reach the best solutions for all creative problems she encounters and is an inspiration to those around her. She makes her colleagues and friends want to be better both in the work environment and out.
