Kristine grew up on the family farm in the East Kootenays of British Columbia. This is where she first knew her love of animals and farm life. Kristine and her horse were inseparable. Moving to the Foothills of Alberta, Kristine and her family enjoyed many more years on a farm just outside of Calgary. A fun fact, she volunteered to do amphibian monitoring. Kristine started with Big Rock Animal Clinic as a volunteer in 2013 and hired on in 2016. She continues to learn and develop her skills with her favorite team at Big Rock.
