Until 2001 Kris was accompanist for the Suffolk County Music Service and for The Ipswich Suzuki group.
Kris then moved into her true passion of Alternative Provision, working at 4rce and then The Attic.
Kris has been a keen fundraiser both in an out of school. In 1991 Kris and her friends fundraised for a defibrillator on the Paediatric Resuscitation Unit at Ipswich hospital.
Her free time is spent enjoying time with her family and going to Cornwall whenever she can.
