Kristina grew up in Boise and attended McMillan Elementary, Lowell Scott Middle School and graduated from Centennial High School in 2000. During her senior year she was one of three Drum Majors leading the band to win the District III Competition. She attended Ricks College the summer of August 2001 when the college transitioned from a Junior College to a four-year institution and the name changed to BYU-Idaho. She studied nursing at BYU-I and then decided to change her major to Dental Assisting and was accepted at Boise State University where she received her Associates Degree.
She worked as a Dental Assistant in Boise, Provo, UT and Cascade. She also worked at the Recreation Center in Cascade and then pursued a position with the Cascade School District. She loved working at Cascade Schools and decided she wanted to teach. Currently she was an Art Teacher teaching K-12 students and pursuing her bachelor’s degree and teaching certification at Boise State University. She would have received her degree from BSU in December 2022. She was extremely creative, and this was her dream job. She loved the students, and they loved her. She encouraged them to do their best while teaching not only art, photography, yearbook, and more, but life-long skills emphasizing treating others with kindness. She also worked on many community projects and served in several leadership positions in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints throughout her life.
