Kristi is currently an event coordinator at the Columbia Country Club, but she has always had a passion for magazines and journalism. She graduated from the University of Missouri School of Journalism in 2012 with an emphasis in magazine editing. As a previous full-time employee of The Business Times Company, Kristi has enjoyed being able to still be a part of the team as part of the Advisory Board as well as the magazine's copy editor. She loves having the opportunity to work with the magazine's staff and the other ladies on the Advisory Board while staying updated on current happenings in Columbia. Like Michele, she is a Columbia transplant but after attending college here and returning to be with her now fiancé, Ryan, she feels Columbia is home.
