Meet Kris Zahn…

Kris has performed under incredible pressure. She won. She lost. Traveled the world.
Drove the country in a motor home. Encountered more irate customers than she cares to
remember. But she’s seen more customer smiles than frowns!
In career and volunteer activities Kris has motivated and managed diverse groups of
individuals. Played politics with professionals. Inspired, cajoled, threatened and begged
other business owners to be the best they could be.
Most importantly, Kris has focused on and challenged our country’s most valuable resource,
our youth. And always had fun doing it because it’s all in the “APPROACH”!
