Miss Kris Garcia

Executive Assistant to the Head of School 

I have thirteen years of professional experience in New York City in office management and providing executive support both in schools and corporate organizations. Over the past six years, I’ve been enjoying my career in Education. Prior to joining Wetherby-Pembridge, I worked as coordinator in administration and as admissions associate at the New York International School. Preceding NYIS, I was at a Mandarin and Spanish immersion school and worked in the business office, admissions, and managed after-school programs.

Children exude enthusiasm, energy, and a cheerful vibe that are highly infectious, and this is one of the reasons why I find it truly delightful to work in a school environment. The relationships that are built within school walls are priceless. I believe that learning is a never-ending process, and challenges and diverse responsibilities make me thrive.

I have a bachelor’s degree in Hotel, Restaurant, and Institution Management. I was born in the Philippines and lived there until I was 20 years old. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my dear loved ones, going on long walks in the city, going for a stroll in parks, joining workout classes, reading, and travelling, if time permits.
