Saying Goodbye to Our Amazing Co-Executive Director, Kristen WoodsšŸ’•

Dear Wise Fool Community,

I, Kristen Woods, am writing to inform you I am stepping down from my position as staff and Co-Executive Director of Wise Fool New Mexico. It has been a privilege to serve in this organization for five years.

I began in this position as a temporary Adult Programs Coordinator, then transitioned to Youth Programs Coordinator. In January of 2020 I became Co-Executive Director. I am proud of all I have done to keep Wise Fool going and to provide an opportunity for this community to experience the joy of circus.Ā However, I have decided to accept a job at the City of Santa Fe.

I plan to stay involved with Wise Fool as a coach, performer, on the Board of Directors, and as a community member.

My roles will be taken over in the following way:

I leave with a heart full of love for our community, circus and the beautiful work created in the Wise Fool Studio. I am so grateful for the good work I have been able to do here in my home of Santa Fe and for the benefit of Social Circus. I have loved getting to support youth on their journeys, train with new and old friends and be part of some really magical creative moments.Ā 

If you need to get in touch with me, please reach out to and you will be connected with my personal email.

I am grateful for all that I have learned at Wise Fool and for the privilege of working with this community. I have made great friends, creative work that I loved and some of my happiest memories. I am truly grateful for having had the opportunity to work at Wise Fool.

With Gratitude,
Kristen Woods
