Speaker | Activist | Artist

My work in its many components is first Christ-centered and secondly human-centered. The call for Christian compassion (literally "to suffer with") is one that I reverence deeply, as it guides my ministry, my education efforts, and my daily encounters with others. 

No matter where I reside or what organization I represent, I consider myself an instrument and strive to be finely tuned to God's will. I love to serve communities, help people flourish, and do my part to build a culture of life. and a civilization of love. 

I use my gifts of communication, hospitality, and craftsmanship, in my work to share with people the joy of the Gospel and the joy of life.

We admire how she can get on stage and share her story. God has a bigger plan for someone with her talent.

She has a gift. She was gentle while talking about such a hard topic.

About the Activist
Like many activists, Krista started out on her high school and college campuses. One of her high school teachers faced a medically complicated pregnancy and faced the pressure of abortion from the medical field. The experience of the school-wide support for this unborn life would lay a foundation for her future activism.
In college, she served in the background with the cemetery of the innocents, bake sales, and attending pro-life presentations. She was impacted by a presentation on her campus when she realized the gravity of the human rights violation of abortion. Feeling like she did not have a place in the pro-life movement, she thought little of it for many years. 
 
She would later go on to work as the Youth Programs Co-Director of Louisiana Right to Life, which shaped her career and her life tremendously. As she spoke out against abortion in her pro-life educational presentations throughout her home state and even nationally, she discovered her own story of origin over the course of three years. 
 
In that time, she began to explore the consistent life ethic through the outreach and education of Rehumanize International. After attending their Life, Peace, Justice Conference, she was ignited with a newfound passion and was brought to a new chapter of her activism. It was at this point that she integrated her activism with her art, and she saw her musical gifts as a way to spread the message of the consistent life ethic. After winning their create | encounter contest, she served as a member of the board and is now President of Rehumanize.
 
Around the same time, she volunteered with a Death Penalty Repeal Coalition with the Jesuit Social Research InstituteDiocese of Lafayette and Louisiana Black Advocates for Life, among other activists. 
 
Krista now resides on the West Coast and collaborates with Pro-Life San Francisco and Democrats for Life of America. She has been interviewed on the podcasts of Rehumanize International and Americans United for Life. 
Her activism includes educational presentations and conversations, sidewalk advocacy, program consultation, nonprofit communications aid, and nonviolent direct action. She is the founder of Even This Way, a nonprofit that seeks to bring forgiveness to families, compassion to communities, and healing to the hurting.

About the Artist
In Pope John Paul II's Letter to Artistshe writes "Beauty is a key to the mystery and a call to transcendence. It is an invitation to savor life and to dream of the future." Krista's call to experience and express beauty is ultimately a response to this invitation. 

Krista is a lifelong artist. She is a singer/songwriter, dancer, calligrapher, and enjoys musical theatre, painting, and using "beautility," or "effective beauty" in her work. 
 
Her worldview is through a contemplative lens, which guides her experience and perception of the world, including how she consumes beauty. This impacts the way she encounters relationships, her art, and her work. 

An artist's perception of beauty is a part of the creative experience, but beauty is also a form of self-expression. A creative firecracker, Krista is passionate about crafting her message whether she is on a stage, writing a song, or storytelling.
