Kristin made her first venture to Martha's Vineyard in 1995 to work for the summer, while attending nursing school. She was immediately taken with the Island and returned for the next two summers, ultimately making it her home in 1998.
She spent the next seven years working at an upscale inn and restaurant on the Vineyard, where she honed her skills in business operations and management, while helping guests plan their perfect vacation or wedding day.
Kristin has been an active member of the community and non-profit worlds here on the Vineyard, including serving as president and secretary of the MV Women’s Network, and working with the Vineyard Nursing Association as a chief fundraiser and event organizer for five years.
Kristin continues to find and appreciate the Island: "The island is truly a place where your neighbors, friends, and even strangers, rise up to help those in need."
She lives in Oak Bluffs with her husband and young daughter.
