Originally from SW Michigan, Kristin has lived in Jacksonville, Coconut Grove, and now, in High Springs as of 2010.  In 2005, after a camping trip, she and her husband decided this was an area that they liked and, wanting to live on the river, bought a home in 2006 and moved here in 2010.

From 1972 to 1984, Kristin was a flight attendant with National Airlines and Pan Am Airways.  Later, from 1990 to 1996, she volunteered at Coconut Grove Elementary in Miami, FL., and two of those years she was PTA President. They  generated approximately $30k-$40k a year parking cars in their sports field from the festivals held in Coconut Grove, monies that went to aftercare programs and tutoring.

Kristin worked for her husband as his office manager and other flex jobs in order to be able to be home with their children when needed. When they went away to university, she returned to work at the Clerk of Courts in Miami-Dade from 2006-2010, and also worked for the Alachua Clerk of Courts after moving to Alachua County.

As an Alachua County resident, Kristin volunteered for Women’s International Habitat for Humanity for two years, spending 6 months a year raising monies to build the house and the next six months building. During that period, they built two houses.  From  2014 to 2017 she also joined the Master Gardener’s program.

Kristin states, “As a member of the community and a resident on the Santa Fe River, I now want to help protect something that, once gone, might never be again.”
