Kristin comes from a military family, but spent most of her life in Kansas. When she was 25 years old, she realized she needed and change, so she moved to northeastern Vermont. While living in Vermont, she received both her Bachelor’s and Master Degrees in English Literature and Cultural Studies from a small liberal arts college. Kristin has been working in higher education since 2012, and has been fortunate enough to work in many different departments: Public Relations, English Departments, Housing and Student Life, Admissions, and the Registrar’s office. Her experiences across higher education have given her an opportunity to understand the many facets at colleges and universities which enable her to more effectively help students navigate college life.
When Kristin's not working, she enjoys spending time outdoors with her husband and daughter. The weekends are filled with shopping at Soda City, walking the trails at the state parks, and trying new foods downtown. They appreciate all that Columbia has to offer and look forward to continuing to learn more about the southern culture.
