Staff Spotlight: Kris Powers

Kris has been with Ed4Career for over four years and has held many positions within the company, allowing her a thorough understanding of each department. She has been in her current role as Social Media Relations Manager for the past two years and has enjoyed this position immensely. Kris maintains the social media channels for the Ed4Career brand, as well as developing content for weekly blogs, newsletters, and the creation of branded graphics. Her primary responsibilities include creating, managing and growing brand presence across all social media channels as well as acting as an aggregator of online education news and events.

Kris holds a degree in Social Work from Florida State University and finds that connecting people with one another as well as with available resources is a driving force regardless of her workplace. 

Sharing information is, and always has been, a passion.

Outside of Ed4Career, Kris helps to run a very successful Product Development Consultancy and Market Research agency outside of Orlando, Florida. Helping technologists and consumers communicate is a specialty.

Kris and her husband, Bill, have been married for almost 27 years and have two boys age 18 and 22. Once the youngest goes off to college in the fall, Kris will add “empty nester” to her resume – something that she’s not looking forward to! 

In her free time, Kris enjoys cooking, reading and working out. Kris’s advice for students and professionals alike is to “find a calendar system that works for you. Put in due dates and work backwards to set goals for assignment completion. Always stay ahead!” And her favorite quote?  “I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” Maya Angelou
