Kristy Bowers joined the Boise Co-op as General Manager in 2017 after a long history in the conventional grocery industry in the Seattle area. She enjoys bringing people together with high quality food, making the transition to a consumer co-op a natural one. Since joining the Boise Co-op, Kristy has been working with the team on a wide range of initiatives in operations and sustainability. With approximately 30,000 members, the Boise Co-op represents a large portion of the Boise community; Kristy continues to seek out new ways for the co-op to become a larger influence in the community with key initiatives that support the co-op's goals. In her time off, Kristy enjoys exploring new foods and spending time in the mountains surrounding Boise.
