Kristi Koehl

Leadership Board Member: 2021-2023.

Kristi and her family (Will, William, and Hudson) have been attending Manchester UMC since moving to St. Louis from Los Angeles in 2014. They became members in 2017.

Kristi is on hiatus from the Modern Worship Team during the pandemic, but is looking forward to returning in the future. Kristi has participated in a handful of book clubs/small groups at Manchester UMC and is grateful for the meaningful connections and many friendships made through these experiences.

Kristi is an HR/Operations Manager at PriceWaterhouseCoopers, where she has worked for the last five years. In the summer of 2020, Kristi initiated a Diversity and Inclusion “Lunch and Learn” series at PwC, which was inspired by the Social Justice efforts at Manchester UMC.

Kristi holds her MFA in Performance from Arizona State University and her BA from Emory University. She is a native West Virginian, life-long Cardinals fan, and now Manchester UMC enthusiast. She is honored to serve on the Leadership Board.
