Before business school, Kiersten worked as a technical project manager in the film industry where she cultivated skills in business analytics, stakeholder management and Agile development. One of her primary projects involved managing a software team in developing performance capture technology that can capture motion underwater. After four years of working in production on films such as the Avatar sequels, Alita and Wonder Woman, she decided to pivot to something more personally meaningful. Having grown up in a mountain town in Colorado, environmental sustainability has always been a cause for which she cares deeply so she came to Anderson to transition to a career in cleantech.
At Anderson, Kiersten has served on the boards of Energy Management Group, Anderson Technology Business Association and the Outdoor Adventure Club. She also served as her team’s Lead in the Patagonia Case Competition and is pursuing UCLA’s Leaders In Sustainability certificate.
In her free time, she enjoys mountain biking, watching arthouse movies and exploring cities on foot.
