BRIDGES Instructor and Coordinator
Kristen Orola is a 2013 graduate of CSU Long Beach, majoring in English Education. Her original goal was to become a credentialed high school English teacher, but wanting more infield experience before committing to the credential program led to working at Heart of Los Angeles. She has worked in the juniors program of the banked track all women’s roller derby league, the Los Angeles Derby Dolls and has also been a tutor for different after-school programs. The necessity of thinking on the spot and being able to adapt to different situations everyday has been an interesting and pleasant challenge.
