Health topics Kristine writes about primarily concern children's mental health, general mental health, children's nutrition, public health concerns, and preventative efforts during disease outbreaks. While much of Kristine's writing on health is data-driven, she also focuses on qualitative writing to provide readers with an engaging narrative that will raise their interest on pressing health matters.
Studying international relations in college, Kristine is excited to work on projects concerning both global and local politics. In the past, she has written on trade liberalization in China and the implications of eugenics.

Additionally, Kristine has prepared informative materials on ways individuals in the community may effectively advocate for issues they find important.
Working with nonprofits for several years, Kristine has extensive experience creating newsletters and reaching out to groups interested in a certain cause.
