Kristin Zosa Puleo
Special Events Coordinator
A native Rhode Islander with an unabashed love for her tiny home state, Kristin has an MA in Art History, and a work history that ranges from line cook, to adjunct professor, to her current position in the special events department at Johnson & Wales University. Her passion lies in spreading love for the arts and all things Rhody.
Kristin lives in Exeter with her husband, two daughters (and future PVD Ladies), her dog, and two cats. In the summer, you'll find her at the beach. In the winter, you'll find her huddled by the fireplace because she hates the cold but refuses to leave this state, because that how we do it in RI. Year-round, you'll find her running through the streets of Exeter because that's how she keeps her sanity.
