My name is Kris Otto, I was born in Reading, PA and moved to St Petersburg Beach in 1978. I love the beach, swimming, horseback riding, spending time with my daughter, who is a nurse, and traveling with my husband of 36 years!
I retired from the medical field after 30 years in the Cardiology department.
I came to LiFT in 2014 to Volunteer and fell in love with the students. In 2015, I was hired as the secretary of LiFT Academy. In 2017, I transitioned to Teacher’s Assistant, helping with the students. Sometimes, one on one. In 2020, after school had resumed, I became a substitute teacher through the end of the school year of 2022.
I am excited to announce that I am back at LiFT full-time as the LiFT Adult Training Program Manager for the 2022-2023 school year. This is going to be a GREAT year!
