Guest Keynote Speaker: Kristin Wintermute

Kristin Wintermute received her undergraduate degree from the University of Montana in Pre-professional Psychology with a minor in Art Studio and a Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Maine. Her early career was working as a mental health practitioner in a variety of settings including private practice, public schools, non-profit clinics and a major health care company over an 8-year period. In 1998, she made the decision to leave the field of social work to become a stay-at-home Mother. Pursuing part-time work from home, she was hired by the North American Committee for Humanism (NACH) to be their Executive Director. In 1999, NACH and it’s subsidiary, The Humanist Institute (THI) became one organization. Kristin initially was THI’s Business Manager, but then was appointed their Executive Director. She worked for THI for twenty years. At the end of 2017, THI dissolved as an independent organization forming the American Humanist Association Center for Education. Kristin is now its Director. She also served for many years on the American Humanist Association and Humanist Society Board of Directors. She currently lives in Minneapolis, MN with her husband and three children.
