Holding a Bachelor of Arts degree in Behavioral Science with a focus on Psychology and a Bachelor of Science in nursing, Kristina Spaete brings a diverse and unique background to EndCAN. A teacher of 11 years, Kristina nurtured her love for children and creativity. She currently works as a float nurse at a local hospital, caring for all types of patients.

In 2013, Kristina launched Dream and Believe, a non-profit organization that challenges today’s youth to see how their actions can make a difference in the world around them. Kristina’s devotion to mental health and children is the driving force behind her personal mission to bring compassion and empathy to all areas.

When she’s not working, Kristina is hanging out with her four boys, getting messy, making art, or exploring outside. She believes that change is created through knowledge and passion and can break the stigma of abuse.
