Kristine started working part-time while studying Communications at NCSU in 2003 (though a Duke Basketball fan since birth). Enamored by the jewelry and fun atmosphere, she continued her career wearing multiple hats within Jewelsmith, zealously learning the jewelry industry from her skilled colleagues. From photography, to accounting, to vendor & client relations and interaction, Kristine manages everything (and everyone) from the front of the house to the back. When she's not multi-tasking at work, she's busy planning her next travel destination. Full of wanderlust, she loves to travel and explore new places and its food and beverages. If you can't find her here, she's probably scuba-diving, or at the beach, listening to music and dancing with her fur-baby, Ace. In true 80s-baby/Gen X fashion, Diamonds and Pearls make her a happy girl.
