Assistant city attorney, City of Fort Myers
Kristalyn Loson has accomplished many things since graduating from Mariner High School in 2001. She obtained her Bachelor of Business Administration, cum laude, from the University of Miami, followed by her Juris Doctor, with honors, from George Washington University Law School. She then went on to work as an attorney with a top 100 firm in Washington D.C., training several national nonprofit organizations on topics like bylaw-creating and mitigating risk management. Loson also helped establish DC Diaper Bank, a prominent organization serving children and families, before returning to Southwest Florida in 2015. Now, she’s one of only three attorneys working to represent the City of Fort Myers, providing legal guidance to the city council, mayor, city department and advisory committees daily.
Shortly after returning to Fort Myers, Loson became a founding board member of Valerie’s House, a nonprofit dedicated to young children who have lost their parents. She now serves as a founding board member of Lee County Bar Association Foundation and board member of Lee County Association of Women Lawyers and Lee County Bar Association’s Young Lawyer division. She’s also one of only 21 2017-18 graduates of The Florida Bar Wm. Reece Smith Jr. Leadership Academy, a statewide leadership academy for Florida lawyers.
Loson is an avid runner and enjoys University of Miami football and spending time with her fiancé, Scott, and his two teenage daughters.
