Tristen enjoys various podcasts, obsessively follows dystopian dramas, and loves playing board games with friends. The majority of her previous experience lies in the coordination of events, campaigns, and project execution. Throughout her career, she has gained the ability to collaborate with people from all types of backgrounds, but her true passion is economic empowerment. Before arriving at The Inclusivity Institute, she worked on empowering youth through financial literacy. As the Director of Community Outreach and Economic Empowerment, Tristen is primarily focused on programs that benefit underbanked communities, expanding affordable loan products, and partner outreach.
