Throughout her four years at the University of Puget Sound, Kristina honed her problem-solving and investigative skills through the pursuit of both physics and environmental policy and decision making degrees. As a physics major, Kristina tackled complex mathematical problems that required both a methodical approach and clever thinking to complete successfully; simultaneously, her environmental policy coursework required that she read and research United States environmental policy and write and discuss its implications. Her education instilled in her strong attention to detail and an efficient approach to work, as well as a love for research, the pursuit of knowledge, and the communication of novel ideas to diverse audiences.
