Kristen Lavelett, Executive Director


Kristen Lavelett joined Local First Utah in July 2010. Kristen has lived in Salt Lake City for ten years, and desired to become a part of the Local First movement when she realized that all of the places she loved to eat, drink and shop at in the city were ornamented by the "Buy Local First" window cling. She began working with Local First on a volunteer basis, and has steadily increased her involvement and commitment to the organization where she now serves as Interim Director. As the Interim Director, she works on a statewide level to accomplish the educational mission of the Local First Utah and to enhance partner engagement in the movement as a whole. Kristen leads a small group at The Rock Church, loves to cook, travel and go to concerts.
