Kristin D. Ashcraft

KRISTIN D. ASHCRAFT is the vice president of commercial operations at Counsyl, Inc., and has worked in the healthcare and life sciences space for almost a decade. Her professional fulfillment is driven by combining her passion for efficiency and customer advocacy into her work and her interactions. Throughout her over almost twenty year career, Ashcraft has cultivated an ability to “see the puzzle pieces in 3D” across applications — from business strategy to employee engagement.

Ashcraft is an active sponsor of Counsyl’s Women’s Employee Resource Group and regularly shares her support for women like herself who seek to grow in their professional leadership capacity and raise a healthy and happy family.
