Since 2007 Kristy Weidman has worked for Oregon Tech, first starting as an adjunct professor and then advancing to assistant professor. Kristy teaches marketing and management courses and brings years of experience working in both non-profit and for-profit sectors. Kristy has worked in advertising, sales, media coordinator/buyer, event planner, volunteer coordinator, video production, public affairs, and graphic design. She holds a Master of Arts from Thomas Edison State College, a Bachelor of Science from Oregon Tech, a journalism and broadcast rating from the Defense Information School (DINFOS), and recently completed a Marketing Strategy Certification program through Cornell University. It’s not uncommon to see Kristy taking classes on campus—she continually audits at least one class a quarter. She feels it is important to remain relevant and to continually learn new things.
Kristy serves on two active boards, numerous committees, and volunteers throughout the community. Currently, she is a board member with Discover Klamath where she also serves on the marketing committee; serves as the newly appointed Secretary for Klamath Basin Youth Without Borders (KBYWB); serves on the Oregon Tech marketing committee and the Oregon Tech management marketing sub-committee and the Klamath County Tourism Grant committee.
Kristy has traveled on two humanitarian trips abroad—one to Tanzania Africa with Oregon Tech’s Engineers Without Borders and the other with Habitat for Humanity to Trinidad. Kristy has been happily married for over 15 years to a corporate pilot, has two children, and thoroughly enjoys the outdoors. Her favorite activity is to take her rambunctious Jack Russell, Mogley, on Hogsback for their daily hikes.
