SLN Board Chair: Kristin Lanari


We would like to reintroduce Kristin Lanari to the SLN community. She served as the Wisconsin state representative on the SLN board for many years before taking on roles as Co-Chair of Chapter Development, Vice Chair, and now Chair of the Sibling Leadership Network.

Kristin is the oldest of three siblings and lives in Appleton, WI near her sister who has Down syndrome. Kristin has been an active member of WisconSibs since 2004 and the Sibling Leadership Network since its inception. She served on the WisconSibs Board of Directors for six years and was a member of the fundraising committee.

In 2009, Kristin received a grant to photograph and edit a book called Walk With Me, featuring essays by local siblings of people with Down syndrome. She has spoken for numerous panels and seminars in Wisconsin and beyond, advocating for siblings and their families. More recently, Kristin founded the WisconSibs READ book club for adult siblings.

When she’s not advocating for siblings, you can find Kristin sewing, making music, hiking, and exploring national parks with her husband and two children. She owns a photography studio with her husband, and is also a food blogger and recipe developer specializing in recipes for people with food allergies.
