Krissy Gape/Project Coordinator
With over 20 years of experience in the construction industry Kris’s role is to support and help manage the finer details that go into each project. She coordinates meetings, permits, logistics, staff, office management, oversees document control, accounting, and manages websites and social media. Throughout the years, she has been involved in her family’s General Contracting firm in South Florida, gaining valuable experience in all aspects of construction such as design and build, commercial, residential, bidding, and preparing RFP’s. Alongside Derek, she helped start a luxury home building company in Hope Town, Bahamas, assisting and coordinating the construction of some of the island’s premiere homes. She enjoys the design component of projects and is great at product sourcing followed by the installation of the design elements for clients.
Originally from Florida and Arizona, Kris has been in the Bahamas for over 20 years. She attended Florida Atlantic University and has degrees in Education and Psychology. She is also a certified Montessori Teacher. After moving to Hope Town right out of college, she started a Montessori School (pre-primary) in Hope Town when she was 23. The school was available to everyone and anyone regardless of their ability to pay.
Krissy lives in Grand Bahama now, with her husband Derek and is a busy mom of Jack, and twins, Harrison and Lucy. She enjoys cooking, entertaining, paddle boarding, yoga, and tennis with friends. She is involved with the Grand Bahama Sailing Club and Lucaya International School.
