Kristina grew up in Old Lyme and has made Lyme her home since 2004. She held numerous jobs in the corporate world and most recently was the Administrative Director of Musical Masterworks, a nonprofit chamber music series in Old Lyme. As the Executive Director, she is responsible for leading the LLCT as it relates to the strategic direction and overall management of the organization.

“The Land Trust protects land for perpetuity, provides outdoor recreation, and educates the surrounding community of the importance of conservation and environmental sustainability. We strive to be an example for other land trusts to follow.”
Originally from Farmington and having lived in 6 different states and 14 different towns since high school, Sue, husband Bob, and her two sons are happy to make Lyme their home since 2015. As the Environmental Director for LLCT Sue oversees stewardship of 110 parcels across town, working hand-in-hand with volunteers, landowners, neighbors, and town officials, to ensure that LLCT continues to carry out its mission of land preservation and conservation in perpetuity. Her ultimate goal aims to reduce the stigma of easement management and ownership, and engage the community in conservation on a local level.
“For me both personally and professionally, the most important aspect of the Land Trust is that it continues to remain an active and exemplary land trust within our region, and that its programs and preserves are able to offer something for everyone.”
