Kristine graduated from Western Washington University with a degree in Education and a teaching certificate. She taught for 6 years with the Tukwila School District and during that time earned her Master’s Degree from Lesley University with a focus on Creative Arts integration.

Kristine has been a member of John Knox for over a decade and has served John Knox families in many roles including that of Nursery Director, Sunday School and JAM teacher, VBS volunteer, small group leader, and Elder. Kristine and her husband, David, have 3 energetic, enthusiastic, and sometimes exhausting children who have been part of all of these programs as well, so she brings not only the experience of teaching but also that of a parent. She is very excited to partner with you in this ministry.
