Kristin Underwood (IPVS 13) first came to The Fund for American Studies in 2013 as a student in the Institute on Philanthropy and Voluntary Service (IPVS).
During her student summer, Kristin interned at the Capital Area Food Bank. Through that experience and her TFAS coursework, she became firmly convinced of the importance of philanthropy in a free society and inspired to find ways to give back herself. She returned the following summer as the IPVS program advisor, and upon graduation, Kristin came back to TFAS where she is now the coordinator of communications.
Kristin graduated from Oklahoma State University with a bachelor’s degree in strategic communication and a minor in political science. During her time at OSU, Kristin was actively involved in her campus ministry, volunteer organizations and her sorority.
Kristin spent a summer in Japan teaching English as part of a Let’s Start Talking mission project after her freshman year. These days, she enjoys spending time with her friends and exploring all that D.C. has to offer.
