Kristine Thomas is a photographer, graphic artist, educator, volunteer, and mother who values teamwork, service, and excellence.

Through her vast experiences, Kris brings a unique perspective to each one of her wide variety of projects. With a positive and fun approach, Kris is often overheard boasting about how lucky she is to have a job that is fun.

As the last of six children born to an accountant and a New York City firefighter, Kris Thomas learned at an early age the benefits of teamwork and dedication. Her parents were the foundation of hard work while always helping others in their spare time.

After earning her Bachelor of Science at NYIT, where she volunteered for the Arthritis Foundation as well as, tutored fellow students, Kris began her career with a job at Doubleday in Garden City where she eventually became the supervisor of Creative Projects.

After leaving her rewarding position and beloved coworkers, she decided to pursue a freelance career to dedicate more time to her growing family.

She has worn many hats since: Girl Scout leader (for more than a decade), in-house photographer and graphic artist for countless organizations, educator, animal shelter volunteer, and Uber mom extraordinaire…. just to name a few.

Upon learning that Cold Caps for chemotherapy patients are not covered by insurance, Kris partnered with her sister and a friend to start, Caps of Courage (where Cold Caps are provided for underprivileged patients undergoing chemotherapy).

Kris’ years of experience and perspective have inspired her to teach, develop, and mentor the children in her community. She brings this same dedication not only to her work with clients but to her volunteer work, time as an educator and most importantly her role as a mother- empowering all children to strive to achieve greater success.
