Fun FActs

Kristin went to law school knowing that she never wanted to practice law, but went to law school to improve her potential ability to get a job in collegiate athletics. During her undergraduate career she had four jobs, one was to manage and oversee the operations of marathons and triathlons, another was as a research assistant and helping to author a Dummies book (Historical Jesus). Recently she learned she had to eat a gluten free diet and really misses garlic bread more than anything.
