Kristi’s interest in financial planning came later in her career. She studied quality management and marketing on her way to a B.A. in Business Administration from Eureka College.
After graduation, Kristi started her career at State Farm Insurance, first working on the company’s Disaster Recovery/Business Continuity project, then moving into corporate management support for multiple departments. She attained a degree in Insurance Services while there.
Kristi joined BRF in 2005. Shortly after, Kristi became a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ practitioner and began serving several of the firm’s multi-generational and complex client families.
Originally from Central Illinois, Kristi has been based in Chicago since starting with BRF. Outside of the office, she is an avid supporter of performance arts (especially theater and live music) and animal rescues.
