Kristy Milburn brings 10 years of non-profit experience to Aspire. She has supported environmental and social justice non-profits through fundraising events, capacity building, and program management. She has an adventurous spirit and loves to travel, which led her to live in China for four years. A highlight of her time in Beijing was accompanying Dr. Jane Goodall on her five-day trip in Beijing, during which Kristy executed the largest fundraising event at JGI China to-date. Since joining Aspire in 2021, Kristy has strengthened Aspire’s AmeriCorps program and implemented new ways of recruiting and retaining talented candidates to create additional stability for the program team and consistency for the students. She looks forward to expanding public funding opportunities and building additional community partnerships to further strengthen AmeriCorps Member recruitment and Aspire’s presence in Arlington.
