Originally from Minnesota, Kristin moved with her family to Southern Oregon at the age of 10. After graduating from South Medford High School, she received her undergraduate degree from Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas followed by her Master’s degree in Physical Therapy in 2002 from Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia. The desire to return to the Northwest brought her to Portland to begin her career, where she lived for five years before returning to the Rogue Valley with her husband, Erik.
Kristin spends much of her days shuttling her two teenage sons to their various school and sporting activities. She enjoys exercising (achieving her goal of running the Boston Marathon in 2016) and is an avid sports fan (especially of the Minnesota Vikings). In her free time, you will find her planning her next travel adventure with her family. She has visited 42 states with a goal of seeing all 50 states by the age of 50! Another fun fact… Kristin was a national baton twirling champion at the age of 10, “retiring” from competition two years later.
