I am the Color Guard Coach at Dundee Middle School, which is how I was introduced to Eric and Allegiance. I started as a tech for Allegiance’s summer programs, then became the A Guard Director, and then I was the Junior Cadet’s Director. I am excited for my newest role as Secretary on the Board of Directors!
Kirsten resides in Gilberts, Illinois with her husband Tim and family. She has been with Allegiance since the 2012 and over the years has been in a myriad of roles, such as, parent volunteer, fundraiser manager, social media coordinator, instructor, A Guard Director and Open Guard Director. In August of 2022, Kirsten eagerly accepted the role of Executive Director.
Kirsten has been very involved with the marching arts - drum corps, winter guard and marching band as a performer, instructor, technician, director and volunteer for many years. Kirsten began her color guard career in Florida with Lake Howell HS Silver Regiment as a freshman and continued all 4 years of high school. She also marched with Imagination Winter Guard and Suncoast Sound Drum & Bugle Corps. Kirsten’s husband, Tim, is a Cavalier alumnus; son, Chris, is a Trooper’s alumnus; and daughter, Elizabeth, is a Legends, Colts and Allegiance alumna. You can say this is a family dedicated to the performing arts who are all also very supportive of Allegiance Color Guard.
