Kristin is currently serving as the DPA’s Sussex County Director but thanks to her new role as a Real Estate Coordinator for Tunnell & Raysor, P.A. and an increase in job responsibilities, she will be stepping down after this term. Kristin has done a FANTASTIC job serving the DPA members by bringing information and ideas to the Board and Sussex County. She has been instrumental in advocating for the DPA’s use of ZOOM and was the first to implement such technology in her CLEs. We wish Kristin much success in her newly expanded role at T&R and hope to see her back on the Board in the near future!
