Kristen Ball

As the fundraising consultant for patients in the West, Kristen offers fundraising guidance and assistance to help them plan successful fundraising campaigns.

Before joining NFT in early 2017, she taught Oral Communication at the University of Memphis and spent time as a legal intern at Baptist Memorial Healthcare Corporation in Memphis, TN. No stranger to the medical issues facing her patients, she spent over a decade as a part-time caretaker for her late father, David, a long-time diabetic who was diagnosed with end-stage renal failure in 2013.

She received bachelor’s and master’s degrees in communication, as well as a law degree—focusing on health, labor, and corporate law—from the University of Memphis.
