Krysta Jones NAWBO 2016

Krysta Jones
Founder and CEO
Virginia Leadership Institute

As Founder and CEO of Virginia Leadership Institute, Krysta Jones has trained over 300 leaders, helping 30 run for office, and 10 get elected. While serving as Director of Outreach for two Members of Congress, Krysta organized four women's conferences providing several female entrepreneurs an opportunity to lead sessions in front of hundreds of women--sharing their experiences and knowledge, and gaining additional exposure for their businesses. On the Hill, she also coordinated several government procurement conferences, providing women contractors and those interested in contracting with access to updates and information about opportunities. As Chair of the Arlington Commission on the Status of Women, Krysta organized the commission's first two Women in Business sessions, which provided a forum for women throughout Northern Virginia to network and learn about local business resources. She is also currently planning the inaugural "Twenty-four Hours to Change Your Life and Business Retreat," in conjunction with two other women business owners, which will provide an intimate space for both startup and experienced female entrepreneurs to share information and network.
