Kristina Becker

My love of classical music began when I was eight years old in ballet class. I heard Swan Lake by Tchaikovsky, and I was hooked! Eventually my participation in the arts moved on to technical theatre and internships at multiple art museums. I attended the University of Montana, majoring in Technical Theatre with an emphasis in Costume Design and Minor in Art History. After graduation, my career took me towards the medical field, where I worked in Administration for about 10 years, both in Montana and Oregon. When I moved to Portland five years ago, All Classical was the first radio station I discovered – and the dial hasn’t moved since. It is an immense honor and pleasure to be the Office Manager of this fine station, and for my love of music and the arts to come full circle. Outside of work, I enjoy hiking, reading, and eating the amazing food Portland has to offer!
