Trudie Kriss

Office Manager

After growing up in New York, I moved to South Florida in the late 1970’s with my family. Shortly after moving to Florida, I met my husband Holden. In 2000 Holden accepted a job offer from Indian River County which brought us here with our two children in 2001.
Previously I worked in insurance and was a floral designer for many years. I began working at Temple Beth Shalom a few years after joining as a member. Since I enjoy working with people, joining the staff as the office manager was a natural transition for me here at TBS.
Small town living has been a completely new experience for me, but one that I have embraced. I am glad for having the opportunity to enjoy a quieter, friendlier town with everything only a few minutes away, including a nice walk on the beach.
