HCC Southwest Community Outreach Coordinator Kristi Powers hit the ground running when she started on May 5th, preparing for the new Chancellor, Dr. Cesar Maldonado's, visit to the West Loop campus. It's been non-stop action since then.
Powers comes to HCC Southwest with an extensive background in public relations, marketing and television broadcasting. Most recently, Powers managed PR for one of the top sports bars in the nation. She was also an account executive for a local advertising agency.
If Kristi looks familiar to you, it's because she spent several years on camera, as an award-winning Meteorologist and Anchor at KRIV, FOX-26. The Florida native and Florida Gator fan has a Bachelor of Science in Communication from University of Florida and a certificate of Broadcast Meteorology from Mississippi State University.
The outgoing, creative thinker says what she loves about working at Houston Community College is the ability to connect with the community and make a difference in the students' future.
Powers lives in Meyerland with her husband Tate and their two dogs, Alli and Bailey.
