A Houston transplant, Kirsten grew up in a military family and has had the opportunity to live in over ten different states and four different countries. This exposure and first-hand experience laid the foundation for her extensive knowledge and understanding of the relocation process. Kirsten first fell in love with Houston while attending Rice University on an athletic scholarship and earning her Bachelor of Arts in Economics, Policy Studies, and Kinesiology.
She then worked in a dynamic role as the information technology coordinator and contract liaison to a petroleum product company serving the needs of and negotiating transactions for both local and international clientele.

Kirsten stresses that these strengths are pivotal in serving her clients and staying one step ahead of an industry that is increasingly dependent on information technology.
Before making the transition to professional real estate, Kirsten drew on her entrepreneurial nature, top-tier education, and interpersonal skills and became a self-employed professional poker player. Kirsten attributes her professional success to self-discipline as well as her aptitude in statistical analysis and problem-solving.

Reading Program, Rice Outreach Mentoring Program, United Way, and even has her own dog rescue website. Kirsten enjoys working out, traveling and a good cup of coffee.
