40 UNDER 40 AWARD
Krista was named as a “40 Under 40” by the Sacramento Business Journal, an award for professional success and community leadership within Sacramento, Placer, El Dorado or Yolo counties. An excerpt from the profile: What is your favorite thing about the region? My favorite part about Roseville in general is proximity to the important things in life—The Galleria, Target Greatland and Sam’s Club. Honestly though, easy access to freeways, entertainment, mountains and the ocean. If you could improve one thing about the region, what would it be? I would wave a magic wand and see a new private university in Placer County and a new arena in Sacramento. The spillover into other markets economically would be an enormous boost to our region.
