A few years ago, Kris left his legal career to pursue a new and different path, or second phase, focusing more on giving back to the community. He accepted a position within the Mounds View Public School district at Highview Middle School. In his spare time, he offers pro bono legal services in conjunction with The Advocates for Human Rights, representing low-income immigrants who have been abused or are in fear for their life. Kris cares deeply about the people in our district and has a desire to be a voice and advocate for them, representing their interests to strengthen our community.
