Marketing & E-Commerce Manager
Cristen is a natural when it comes to marketing and public relations. She brings her talents to Noah’s, helping us focus on the quality of our brand when it comes to our social, email, print publications, event marketing and public relations. She also oversees the web e-commerce side of things at Noah's and also stays busy serving as the NPP Office Manager!
After college at Oklahoma State University, Cristen spent 2 ½ years at OKC’s premier community theater, Lyric Theater, serving as Development and Public Relations Manager. She worked on projects which involved overseeing all of Lyric’s special events, social marketing, and public relations. After leaving the overly-dramatic world of live theater, Cristen joined the sales team at Box Talent Agency of OKC, as a Booking Agent working with non-profit, bridal, corporate and private event clients. After a few too many “bridezillas”, she decided to join the family business and dive into the super fun world of playgrounds. She’s been at Noah’s since January 2015! In her own words, “I mean come on, who doesn’t love playgrounds?!!”
Cristen was born and raised in Oklahoma - where she will tell you, “is the state where the first parking meter was installed (your welcome?), and has more shoreline than both the Atlantic and Gulf coasts combined (yup, Google it!).” She's competitive folks and loves playing in volleyball leagues and especially loves attending and cheering for the OKC Thunder games with her husband. Cristen always looks forward to the end of the work day, when she gets to go to the park to “test drive” some of NPP’s newly installed playground structures with her three sons.
What she thinks is the best thing about being a part of the Noah’s team:
“My favorite thing about working at Noah’s is the fact that I have the opportunity to promote ‘play and fun’ for children and families everywhere! How many people can say the true focus of their job is the betterment of children’s joy, happiness and health?! Not many!”

One of her favorite moments during her first year at Noah’s was when a customer gifted her with a hand crafted bird house, fashioned from one of the equipment wood palette’s as a “thank you” for Cristen’s excellent customer service.
