Kris Lindsey, her husband Jeff, and her sister Ann moved to Prineville during COVID-19 in May 2020. She contacted HORSES in November 2022 to volunteer and get involved in our community. Since then, her passion and commitment to HORSES has grown, and in February 2023, she became HORSES Board President. Kris works remotely as the Director of Mortgage Fulfillment for BECU (Boeing Employee's Credit Union) and plans to retire in 2024. She was drawn to our organization because of her love for horses, owning two of her own on a 5-acre property near town.
