KRISTIN CHARLTON (West Central Region)
Kristin has had a long life love of water. Beginning with summers and holidays spent at her parent’s cabin in Forest County on Trump Lake and growing up in Milwaukee on the shores of Lake Michigan, she’s been exposed to the joys of lake living. Thanks to her parents, Kristin also had many wonderful adventures canoeing down the Wolf River and enjoying the beautiful environment that Wisconsin has to offer. Her parents instilled in her a strong ethic of protecting lakes and the environment.
Kristin has enjoyed living on Lake Eau Claire in western Wisconsin with her husband for more than 15 years. Deeply involved with the Lake Eau Claire Association, she’s worked on various projects, served on its board of directors and founded and was co-chair of the Lake Eau Claire Clean Water Triathlon. She is a Crew 6 graduate of the Lake Leaders Institute.
Professionally, Kristin has been involved in the contract manufacturing industry for more than 20 years with a specific interest in product development, engineering and industrial design. She holds a Bachelor’s degree from UW-Madison and an MBA from Cardinal Stritch College in Milwaukee. She continues to live on Lake Eau Claire with her husband, one very spoiled Brittany dog named Sam, and two felines.
