Krysteen Villareal

“My latest love is the River. Its history and stories pour over me the further downtown I go. I feel most connected to the past there.”

Meet Krysteen Villarreal, not only is she the office Administrator, but, she is our Donor Relationship and Social Media manager for the San Antonio River Foundation (SARF).  Krysteen is in charge of updating our constituent profiles, donation and cultivation tracking, and reporting all of which helps the Foundation stay on track with its fundraising and community engagement goals. To further cultivate our community of supporters, Krysteen manages our Facebook and Instagram pages, allowing insight to all of the Foundation’s upcoming projects, events and special news.

Krysteen graduated with a Bachelors of Art in Psychology from the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) and was a mental health educator in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Texas Health Science Center before joining the team at SARF. Although born and raised in McAllen, Texas, Krysteen moved to San Antonio in 2009 and wholeheartedly calls the city her home. “With each year that I am here, I move more and more into the heart of the city. My latest love is the River. Its history and stories pour over me the further downtown I go. I feel most connected to the past there. Since joining the team at the Foundation, I feel very lucky to be surrounded by the natural elements the river brings. I want to help ensure that our desires manifest and that San Antonio remains a city of pure charm.”

At the end of the day, Krysteen is a part-time dancer, performer, and instructor. Having been dancing for most of her life, the past several years, she has been focusing on Swing Dancing. “I love to Swing Dance, talk about Swing Dance, and listen to Django Reinhardt. There’s a great American history to Swing music that makes dancing and talking about it so much fun. Much like the river, Swing Dancing has stories that predate my generation, and that connection is important to me. Without roots, there is no growth!”
