Krista joined Quester in late November 2019 and serves as executive assistant to owner Robert “Lewy” Lewis. She has been married to Chris Maeder for 22 years and they adopted a sister/brother sibling group on National Adoption Day in 2005. Fidget, a 2 year old boxer/lab/pit mix is their only pet at the moment.
For the past 30+ years Krista has worked as an administrative assistant or executive assistant role for various companies in Des Moines and she recently ended a decade-long consulting engagement with a foundation in California where she coordinated an award presentation in the Supreme Court of the United States given to an Article III judge.
When not at work she likes to go on walks with the neighbor ladies or her son’s dog and attempt to grow seeds into plants in her greenhouse situated on her 1.5 acre lot on the Northside of Des Moines in Saylor Township. She loves to play cards (Pinnocle, Canasta, Pitch, Cribbage) and enjoys being outdoors in small doses.
