Kristina Anderson is Executive Director of The Koshka Foundation for Safe Schools and co-founder of LiveSafe, a public safety mobile application. Ms. Anderson founded The Koshka Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to helping local community and school stakeholders work together to prevent, respond and heal in the aftermath of school violence, after becoming one of the most critically injured survivors from the 2007 Virginia Tech tragedy.
Critically injured, Ms. Anderson graduated with a degree in International Studies and Foreign Languages, and is now a resource to school administrators, teachers and students within higher education and K-12 regarding violence prevention initiatives and ways to increase individual personal safety awareness. The Koshka Foundation also partners with law enforcement agencies and first responders to provide educational presentations on surviving an active shooter from a survivor’s perspective, and best practices in incorporating lessons learned for civilians.
Kristina will be speaking on campus November 10th from 4 to 5 in Davies Auditorium. She will be talking about her personal experiences in a talk entitled “Safety is Personal: Lessons Learned as a Survivor of the Virginia Tech Tragedy.” To RSVP for the event, click here.
