Kristen Hogentogler - Programs Chair

Kristen Hogentogler is a design, marketing and client services professional who works across a variety of industries to help individuals and brands reach their full potential. She is a Ringling College of Art and Design graduate with a BFA in Advertising Design and a minor in Photography and Digital Imaging. 

She believes that creative problem-solving is a commodity and innovative thinkers are now more important than ever. Her strongest influences come from conversations with others and the dichotomy of man vs. product/service and the role it plays in man’s life. She has worked at the local, national, and international levels and has participated in numerous events including the world-renowned La Biennale di Venezia in Italy. She is also co-owner of an advertising agency that specializes in Facebook advertising and cold market lead generation as well as a part-time Marketing Coordinator for an investment company.

She is thoroughly versed in design and concept ideation, branding, strategy, mindset, public speaking, Facebook advertising and more. Her specialty is partnering with startups and helping to develop brands from concept to rollout. She loves what she does and has adopted the “at life” philosophy so that being hard “at work” never feels like work.

In her downtime, she spends her time traveling and going on bucket list trips. She’s also a performing salsa and bachata dancer on 2 world-class dance teams. Kristen fancies herself a master chef, lover of Chipotle bowls, competitive sleeper, and mother of cats.
