Kristi is a newspaper-trained journalist with over six years of experience as a freelance writer. She both wrote and photographed for a local newspaper for three years before being offered a position in a large local real estate's marketing department. From there, she pursued a career as a Realtor, her real estate adventure lasting almost 10 years. After the fall of the real estate market, Kristi returned to her first love, writing, after completing a BA in American history.

Her varied experiences as a writer, gardener, farmer, home builder and Realtor have given her ample real-world experiences to draw from when creating materials for many different platforms.
