Kristine’s experience and time working as an in-house corporate attorney for a large privately held food manufacturing company has given her the opportunity to work on many different types of transactions and the skills to work with a variety of clients.

Her range of knowledge allows her to work well with a variety of people including realtors, lenders, buyers, sellers, and business leaders.

Interestingly, Kristine's childhood dream wasn't to be an attorney it was to be a race car driver, "I wanted to be a race car driver but was told 'girls can’t do that.' I thought it was a law and decided I would be an attorney so I could get the law changed."

Now many years later, Kristine may not be behind the wheel at the Daytona 500 but she is happy she pursued her dreams of becoming a lawyer so she can help other people achieve their goals .
