Board Chair - Kristine Falletta Abraldes
Kristine decided to help found The Broken Planetarium based on the group's commitment to promoting creativity among all individuals. The Broken Planetarium allows its participants to stretch their creative boundaries in a supportive, caring environment, and Kristine is thankful for its ability to provide her with unique creative opportunities, such as acting in a play!
Kristine is a professional project manager with a background in engineering and a passion for sustainability. She strives to bring creativity and compassion into all aspects of her life. When she isn't promoting the arts through The Broken Planetarium, she can be found volunteering at the Hollywood Farmer's Market, working to keep our community and farmers connected.
Board Secretary - Nita Bryant
Nita Bryant has been a supporter of Laura Dunn and her creative endeavors for many years. It was a natural progression to become a board member of Brokenplanetarium. She can be fond taking notes, contributing her opinions or hanging out with Creative in training, Laura’s baby Finn.
Nita performed in the original production of Frankenstein: A Cabaret in 2016. It was her first time in a stage production and she even got to fulfill the fantasy of singing!
Nita lives in Portland Oregon and works with people near and far to help them become comfortable in their own lives. Finding ways to live their authentic and unapologetic selves.
