Kristine has lived in the Willamette Valley all her life. She has always had a passion for animals. She grew up on a farm and volunteered at the Willamette Valley’s humane society throughout high school. Just after graduation, she accepted a position caring for retired show horses. Then, she worked for a local veterinarian as part of the front office staff while continuing to volunteer for the humane society and wildlife rescues. In 2013, she and her daughter relocated to Tigard, and staying true to her lifelong passion for animals, she came to work at Cat Care Professionals. Kristine and her daughter share their home with their dog Chloe, cat Loly, and rabbit Lily.
