She believes that the strength of the team is a combination of a good attitude, skill, and sportsmanship, and wants her players to not only be great athletes, but great individuals. She is very supportive of dual-sport athletes and extra-curricular activities. Coach Kirsten is very active in the community. She is a Board member on the Johnson Ranch Barracuda Swim Team and the Northern California Swim League. She is PTC President, School Site Council Vice-Chair, NCL and DAR member, as well as serving on various committees within the Eureka Union School District.
