Krista Fotou lives with her husband and son in Petaluma, California. Her son, Elias, attended The Woolman Semester School in the spring of 2015. Currently she works for the Human Services Department of Sonoma County in the Economic Assistance Division. For seven years Krista served as Treasurer for the Friends of Cherry Valley Library. She also volunteered on a committee to raise funds for the Sonoma County Children's Village, a program that strove to keep siblings in foster care together in permanent homes.
Krista was moved by the profound experiences of students attending The Woolman Semester School and began to serve on the board of WSS to contribute to the school's success.
