Hello Friends! My name is Kristy Tompkins and I am excited to be joining you for the summer in the role of Social Media and Communications Intern. I am a northern Michigan native, minus just ten years spent in the Pacific Northwest. I am a fresh air enthusiast and enjoy hiking, backpacking, camping, swimming and most any activity outdoors. I completed the SBD Trail Trekker Challenge with my family in 2017 and have been a rustic trails volunteer ever since. In 2020, I graduated with an Associate’s Degree in Visual Communications and am excited to utilize these skills in the promotion of this organization. I aim to beautifully and creatively capture what the Friends do for our National Lakeshore and share it with the greater community.
