Getting to Know Kristin

What is your idea of perfect happiness?
Laughing so hard you start to cry, your voice gets high and squeaky and you’re exhausted when the laugh is over.  I always feel lighter!

What is your most treasured possession?
I wouldn’t necessarily call my cat Georgie a possession but he’s a love!  I also have a canister set (Sugar, Flour, Coffee) that my grandparents had and used until they gifted them to me.

What do you like most about your job?
The variety in the work.  I have days when I’m in my office in front of the computer all day and others where I’m out and about with clients.  We have a lot of different services we provide so every day is different.
