How did she do it? Much like a certain senator back in 2007-2008, Kristine approached those campaigns the same way she does everything, with hard work, coalition building and a yes-we-can-do spirit.
Kristine grew up in Las Vegas and then obtained her bachelor's degrees in sociology from the University of Washington. From there she went to work for a staffing and recruiting company where she oversaw a $10 million annual budget. She returned to Las Vegas in 2002 with a law degree from Seattle University in hand and went to work for the Clark County District Attorney's office. She has experience in private practice and public service, both civil and criminal cases, and has been working as a Public Defender for Clark County since 2004.
With all that going on, Kristine continues to serve the community. She is an active member of the Clark County Democratic Central Committee and has volunteered for numerous candidates' campaigns. She is a member of the steering committee for the Human Rights Campaign, a member of the Lawyer's Assistance Program and a volunteer for Community Legal Services. She is also the past vice-president of We-Care Recovery Center.
You won't forget her name. She's a superstar in the making.
Kristine resides with her partner of 15-years, Nancy, in Las Vegas. Thank you, KRISTINE for your service to our community - you are appreciated!
