Kristina is a Washington, DC native who has made her way to the Memphis area for a little southern charm. She has a strong background in hotel and catering operations, as well as an MBA with a concentration in project management and leadership. This combination makes her a great asset throughout the event process from contracting and pre-event planning to meeting management and on-site logistics.

As a Senior Event Manager for the Washington Hilton, Kristina managed convention groups 2500 strong, covering 110,000 square feet of meeting space. As Convention Services Manager for the Westin Washington, D.C. City Center, she planned, implemented and oversaw programs totaling in the millions. Her clients appreciate her seamless execution of all details from site inspections and contract negotiations to management of vendors for entertainment, audio visual, floral, décor and more.

Her favorite part of an event is being there to see all of the pieces fall into place and the smile on her clients face at the end of the night. While not working on events, Kristina loves to run along the Mississippi River and then enjoy all the great food Memphis has to offer, especially BBQ.
