Kris Keys works full time for Zephyr out of our Red Lodge, Montana headquarters (which she calls a college town without a college). For most of the year Kris is Zephyr’s alumni ambassador and tour operations specialist. However, she also leads a variety of trips each year.
Kris shares her 500-square foot “Dream Treehouse” with her husband Michael, two pitbull mix rescues and two cats. Her favorite activities outside of work are ice hockey, hiking, snowboarding/skiing, backpacking, snowshoeing, reading, cooking, and socializing with her many friends. Tour participants find her to be organized, competent, a great leader and – true to her Midwestern roots – always friendly. When asked what her life dream is, Kris answers (among other things), “To always have a job where I can work in my pajamas or shorts.”
“Kris is down-to-earth and easy to be with. One of those people you just feel comfortable with right off the bat.”
“Love her! A true professional, leader, guide, problem-solver and go-to girl. She is the reason I have traveled around the world with Zephyr! She also has the best snacks.”
