Kristin Thompson


Kristin B. Thompson Henry, MA is a Syracuse native and a proud graduate of the Syracuse City School District. After attending the University at Buffalo, where she obtained both her bachelor’s and master’s degree, she decided to move back home to grow and flourish her career.

Kristin currently serves as the campaign director for the American Heart Association. In her role, she works with numerous volunteers and community partners to build a culture of health here in Central New York that promotes and encourages longer, healthier lives while empowering individuals to take ownership of their health. She has a passion for addressing health disparities and works tirelessly with community partners to close the gap on health equity issues. To date, she has trained over 500 area residents in Hands Only CPR and doesn’t plan on stopping any time soon.

In addition, Kristin is a 40 Under Forty winner, a past Young Leaders United – United Way of CNY Steering Committee member, past president of the Corporate Volunteer Council, a proud graduate of Leadership Greater Syracuse and currently serves on the board of directors for Interfaith Works.

She has a passion for giving back and supporting the community in which she lives, works and serves and lives her life according to the following quote from George Bernard Shaw, “I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the community, and as long as I live, it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work, the more I live. Life is no 'brief candle' to me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got hold of for a moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to the future generations.”

She is an avid dancer, and a forever fan of Michael Jackson.

Kristin resides in Liverpool with her husband, Mario, and her twin 3 year olds– Rhia (Re-a) and Rhys (Reese).
