Kronda graduated from Texas Tech University with a degree in Landscape Architecture, which is where she met her husband Jeff. Together, they founded Green Meadows Landscaping in 1989, a Lewisville-based business which serves commercial and residential landscape clients all over the Metroplex.
A 27-year Lewisville ISD resident, Kronda and her family have lived in three different feeder patterns within the district, raising four children in Lewisville ISD. Justin, Kaytin and Jacob all graduated from Hebron High School and went on to Oklahoma State University, while Karissa is in 10th grade at Hebron High School.
Kronda was first elected to the LISD Board in 2015, winning in a three-way race over an incumbent trustee. She was elected Vice-President by her board colleagues in June 2017. She has also served on the LISD Legislative, Finance and Facilities Committees.
In addition to her work for LISD, Kronda remains an active member of the Lewisville ISD community. She is an active member of Lewisville, Flower Mound and Metrocrest Chambers of Commerce (serving on the Metrocrest Chamber Women’s Division Committee plus the Planning Committee for the Lewisville Chamber’s 55th Annual Awards Gala), and serves on the board of the Lewisville Education Foundation and Castle Hills Education Foundation.
Kronda is a member of the Flower Mound Noon Rotary, a mentor volunteer for Communities in Schools, an Ambassador for Children’s Advocacy Center of Denton County, and a graduate of the INSIDE LISD Leadership Program. She remains active in Hebron HS booster clubs and PTA.
Prior to her election in 2015, Kronda served as Special Events chair for the Hebron Football Booster Club, leading parents from the five cities that form the Hebron community to establish a Spring Game & Family Festival event, which has quickly developed into a popular tradition linking area families, businesses and school programs together. Kronda and Jeff served as co-presidents for the Hebron Football Booster Club program in 2014. Kronda and Jeff were also active booster club members for the soccer, volleyball and basketball programs at Hebron High School.
The Thimesch family is active in their membership at Bent Tree Bible Fellowship in Carrollton, where Kronda and the children have helped with the Sunday School and Life Group programs. Kronda also assists each summer with the Fine Arts Day Camp, which draws children from all over the Dallas Metroplex to Bent Tree.
