Kristi’s passion for dance started at an early age where she competed in multiple styles of dance for many years. She graduated from Western Washington University with a bachelor’s degree in Marketing and a minor in Psychology, and went on to receive her Master’s in Holistic Nutrition from the American College of Healthcare Sciences. Kristi and her fiancé moved to Austin, Texas for a few years and during that time Kristi worked for an advertising agency as a Senior Media Planner. The Pacific Northwest eventually called for them to come back home and they moved back to Seattle in Summer 2017.
In that time, Kristi has delved deep back into her love for dance and to teach it to others. She is also a certified yoga teacher (RYT) through CorePower Yoga and Yoga Alliance, and a certified Nutritionist in the state of Washington.
Kristi wears many hats at Summit Dance Co. as a dance teacher, yoga teacher, and as the Office Manager, using her degrees and business experience to help Amanda and Gayle out with their steadily fast-growing business! Kristi hopes to combine all experiences she has as a dance teacher/yoga teacher/nutritionist to bring joy, fun, body awareness, and mindfulness to all dancers she teaches!
