Kristin was raised in Cumberland, Rhode Island, a small New England town that’s only acclaim is for being the hometown of the talented Farrelly brothers.  Kristin’s childhood was not an easy one, but tenacity and the ability to get up after being knocked down enabled her to turn hardship into triumph.   This resiliency coupled with a drive to succeed developed at a young age and carried over into college.  Kristin’s strong work ethic and penchant for learning kept her motivated despite working multiple jobs to pay for tuition.   In her senior year, she was named Rhode Island State Government Intern of the Year.  She graduated with honors from the University of Rhode Island earning a B.A. in Political Science with a minor in Communications.   Kristin’s commitment to individual achievement became a driver for a successful career.

Kristin is an accomplished public relations professional who has worked in numerous industries.  She started in government supporting grassroots public affairs campaigns for Congressman Patrick Kennedy (D-RI) and former Lt. Governor Bernard Jackvony (R-RI)], and later transitioned into technology gaining more than a decade of experience in both agency and corporate environments.  At 27, Kristin founded and ran her own PR consultancy, mTell Group.  Kristin made a name for herself in the tech PR world by guiding start-ups and large, global leaders through product launches, downsizing, public offerings, and acquisitions.

After a few life-changing experiences followed by a flurry of epiphanies, she left her successful career, financial stability, a strong support system of family and friends, and is starting over to pursue a dream and live a richer life.

Aware of the great competitiveness, and her professional acting ingénue, Kristin has immersed herself in studying the various aspects of acting.  A very risky – but potentially rewarding – she recently moved to LA. While she’s interested in becoming a dramatic character actress, her intent is to initially focus on her comedic side, something she explored at the Washington DC Improv.  In the end, she hopes passion and perseverance, along with her business acumen and communications expertise will serve as a foundation for success in Hollywood.

In addition to acting, Kristin works as a tech PR consultant and writes for Pacific Punch.
