Krista Rothwell

Assistant Dean
Krista Rothwell has a long history with DCAD and is an alumnus from the first graduating class in 1999! She currently serves as the Assistant Dean but has had multiple roles at DCAD including the Registrar, Institutional Research Coordinator, Senior Admissions Counselor, and Interim Student Services Coordinator. After receiving her BFA from Moore College of Art and Design she began working in higher education where her belief in the importance of art education was cemented. Recently she received her 200-hour yoga teacher training certificate. In her opinion mindfulness and creativity is the foundation for a happy life. Krista’s work in the studio is focused on the relationship between spiritual prana, connection, and memory combining both painting, drawing, and mixed media elements.
