A Moses Lake native, Kristine received her bachelor’s degree in Political Science from Washington State University (Go Cougs!) and went on to pursue a master’s degree in Organizational Leadership at Gonzaga University in Spokane.

She has served in a variety of roles, including Statewide Veterans Constituency Coordinator for U.S. Senator Patty Murray; Director of Economic Development for the Military and Defense sector for the state of Washington, and now as a Community and Economic Development Consultant with expertise in promoting cultural humility, project management, and organizational development.

Kristine is currently pursuing her doctorate in organizational psychology, working to assess political institutions as places of work that need to work better for women and people of color so our democracy works best for us all.
