Kristi's contributions to the legal industry and community are well-established. She is an active member of the Association of Legal Administrators at both the national and local levels, having served as President, Vice President, and Treasurer of the Atlanta Chapter. In 2019, Kristi was awarded the Spirit of AALA Award, an honor given to the member who most exemplifies the positive characteristics, professionalism, and dedication to the legal community set forth in the organization's mission statement.

A graduate of the J. Mack Robinson College of Business at Georgia State University, Kristi has always believed that the best legal administrators view their firm's attorneys and support personnel as valued clients.

"In that same way that our attorneys have a responsibility of excellence to the firm's clients, I believe that I need to be fully committed to their success. That means ensuring they have all the tools and resources necessary for performing their jobs at the highest level. It's a great responsibility, but also one I view as a privilege to hold."

When not working, Kristi enjoys spending time with family and volunteering at worthwhile organizations such as Bright Pink.
