Kristie has been an art director since the age of five, so her mother says. Her formal education began at The Art Institute of Boston where she earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. From there, her passion for advertising and art direction led her to The Creative Circus in Atlanta, GA where she received a graduate degree in Advertising Design.
The Richards Group in Dallas, TX is where Kristie began her career. She felt very fortunate to have worked on many different clients and new business pitches such as Invesco Mutual funds, American Heart Association, Chick-fil-A, Home Depot, and Reliant Energy. From there, her journey from coast to coast began.
Shortly after getting married, Kristie and her husband moved to Boston, MA. After that, they decided to see what the other coast was like and packed their bags and moved to Seattle, WA where she took a job at DDB Seattle. Yes, wanderlust struck yet again and they headed back east to New York. In New York, Kristie started freelancing at various different agencies. Finally, she landed a job at Publicis where some of her responsibilities included the re-branding of various clients such as Lancome, Talbots, and Biolage.
After having two kids, the city was getting a bit too crowded so they packed up again and are now living with their two boys and dog named “Jett” in Atlanta, GA. Currently, Kristie is freelancing on Delta and SunTrust Bank at DigitasLBi.
