Kristin Wooster works with clients to develop public affairs programs focused on helping them shape their narrative and create dialogue with policymakers, regulators, and non-governmental organization (NGOs). Kristin works on a team of policy, legal, product, and public relations professionals who bring a holistic approach to public affairs with a focus on the United Nations. She develops cross-sector dialogue through the establishment and support of client-led coalitions and campaigns.

These initiatives are designed to address individual client interests and contribute meaningfully to broader societal conversations.

Kristin has also completed internships and fellowships across five countries with the United Nations (UN), U.S. diplomatic missions, and USAID.
