Kristine is an outgoing introvert! She is a busy mom to three crazy, beautiful and wonderful children (ages 4 to 17), five rescue wonder mutts, two cats and a tailless Leopard Gecko nicknamed Stumpy.
Her house is immaculately clean… for about two hours, every other week.
Kris runs on strong coffee and believes that when life hands you lemons, mix a very calming French 75!
She’ll tell you that she is is an old soul who loves classic movies and Motown. She’s a Girl Friday, who enjoys The Thin Man movies, says “I’m your Huckleberry” far too often, prefers Rio Bravo to El Dorado and remembers when Han shot first.
Additionally, Kristine is an interactive media and marketing professional who freelances in between momming, blogging, traveling and cheering for her kids at soccer and baseball games.
From coding websites at NASA’s Johnson Space Center (Space Ages ago) and programming proprietary web software for Brinks, to working as Vice President of Interactive Media and Marketing at the nonprofit World Affairs Council, she’s covered the gamut of mission-oriented enterprises in her 20-plus-year career.
She’s loyal to AP style but loves the Oxford comma.
Moreover, Kristine is an advocate for people struggling with Hashimoto’s and autoimmune diseases. Her personal experience with Hashimoto’s has made her passionate about providing tips and resources to aid remission and proper diagnosis for others.
Kristine is also an avid traveler who has explored the corners of Europe, trekked to Africa twice and traversed the halls of the Taj Mahal. She believes in the Dreamers and equal opportunities.
Furthermore, she is an unapologetic Disney fan who braves Orlando’s summers to visit Disney World with her family every year.
Mom’s Mimosa is a passion project for Kristine. She loves to share her recipes, ideas, research, thoughts and views in hope that it will benefit someone, somewhere. If not, she considers it good, cheap therapy for herself.
