Kristin Eberl (she/her/hers) has worked with youth and families for over 20 years focusing on child development as well as youth behavioral health and wellness. Most recently, Kristin worked in New Hampshire’s public school system, as a school counselor, where she had the opportunity to support youth within three domains: career development, academic development and social/emotional development. Prior to this role, Kristin worked in experiential education with a focus on adventure-based therapy, working for several different organizations between Pennsylvania and New Hampshire. Working exclusively within the non-profit sector, Kristin has been given the unique opportunity to not only identify systematic gaps within youth programming, but creative and strategic ways in which to fill them, too. Currently, Kristin’s work within Extension is focused on supporting educator mental health as a starting point to support social and emotional learning in schools. Additionally, Kristin finds diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice work as being foundational in building comprehensive and sustainable youth programs. Educating and training adult leaders on inclusive practices that support our LGBTQ2S+ community are of particular interest to Kristin. Outside of work, Kristin enjoys spending time in New Hampshire’s wild spaces with her husband, two kids, and Irish Wolfhound mix. As a family, they enjoy camping, hiking, and doing projects around their homestead, including maple sugaring and gardening. Kristin has a M.Ed. in Counseling from UNH '08 and a B.A. in Interpersonal and Relational Communications from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania '04.
