Board of Directors, Board Member
Kristine has been a board member for Ruff Start Rescue since May of 2022. She found her passion for all critters at a very young age, being the one to save frogs and salamanders from out of the family garage. Growing up, she never passed up an opportunity to help a critter in need.
Kristine found Ruff Start Rescue with the adoption of her beloved Oliver. Ollie spent the first 3 ½ years of his young life in a rural Louisiana shelter before making it into rescue. For the both of them, it was love at first sight! Unfortunately, Ollie passed in late 2021 from cancer. Kristine turned her grief into a giving opportunity to help more critters in need by being a member of the RSR team!
In her spare time, Kristine enjoys camping, cooking, and spending time with friends and family. She lives in Lakeville with her husband Phillip and their two rescue dogs, Buddy the Elf and Finnely (Finn).
