Kristy Nardone has over a decade of legal experience, as an attorney, as professional staff, and as a consultant. Kristy has an additional five+ years of experience serving as a senior team member for a state agency and also, in various strategic roles for the fundraising arm of a major academic medical center.

Most recently, Kristy’s work with LKO clients has included the creation of experience management taxonomies; development of data mapping of both internal and external resources; organization of knowledge management resources; and overall, with the structuring of data across the firms into searchable and accessible databases. She has also developed training programs for these firms on law practice specifics for the non-lawyer and on how to use new coding related to source improvements for experience management data.

In addition to LKO, Kristy works part-time for the Women’s Bar Foundation (WBF) as their Director of Special Projects, serving in various roles, including leading an effort to streamline data management and develop related workflows. In 2018, she will be working more with CiviCRM and serving, when possible, as the organization’s back-up administrator. Kristy served as the project manager for the WBF’s 2017 data migration from Filemaker to CiviCRM for the highest volume project, the Family Law Project. As part of that work, Kristy worked with the WBF’s Webmaster to develop use cases, the primary legal intake form, and the technical buildout of the legal case database.

Prior to joining LKO, Kristy served as the Director of Administration for Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center’s Office of Development.  In that role, Kristy managed the department’s budget, oversaw its recruitment and professional development efforts, and served as a liaison to the hospital’s human resources team.  Kristy managed the hiring of 10 employees and supervised a six-person administrative team in her first year while leading the hiring of 15 open positions and overseeing a planned build-out for an expected 30% growth in staff in her second year. While with BIDMC, Kristy also led the project management on implementation and reporting for significant ($10M+) gifts to ensure all deliverables were produced on time and aligned with donor expectations.

Before that, Kristy consulted with WilmerHale and spearheaded a firm-wide project to transition all shared drive content into a document management system (Worksite) and served as the Director of Public Affairs and Field Services for the Massachusetts Office for Victim Assistance (MOVA), managing MOVA’s victim services provision, legislative affairs work, training offerings, and victim service provider and survivor outreach.
