Kristina Rhodes is a dedicated volunteer and visionary with Make-A-Wish, an organization that grants wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich their lives with hope, strength and joy. A trailblazer in her region, Rhodes is credited with spearheading the Make-A-Wish mission in an area of the country where it wasn’t well known, and since then, helping make wishes come true for 80 children. She has engaged hundreds of local supporters and corporate sponsors who have raised more than $400,000 dollars. She also launched the first regional council in the area, which has become a model for the Make-A-Wish organization to use throughout the country.
