A former undergraduate tennis player, Kristina firmly believes that college athletics made her who she is today, teaching her life skills she still relies on. Out of a desire to protect that experience for future generations, she earned a J.D. from Marquette University Law School, speciaiizing in sports law. She interned with the NCAA and accepted a position after graduation in compliance for the Big Ten Conference. Kristina later joined the compliance offices of Rutgers University Athletics and Northwestern University’s Department of Athletics & Recreation.

Seeking an opportunity for a broader impact on multiple higher education institutions, Kristina joined the firm in 2024. She assists clients with athletics compliance reviews, NCAA infractions, student athlete relations, Title IX questions, and various hot topics in university athletics, such as NIL rules. Kristina loves supporting compliance offices like the ones where she launched her career and finds it immensely rewarding to help those still in the daily trenches of university athletics.

In addition to her university experience, Kristina has served on NCAA committees and been a part of conversations leading up to significant rule changes. She has a M.B.A from Rutgers Business School and holds numerous professional memeberships and certifiations.
