She graduated from Grover Cleveland High School, Reseda, CA majoring in early childhood education and was employed by the Los Angeles School District as a teaching assistant. She also attended Pierce College, Woodland Hills, CA majoring in Business Education.

Kristie’s family and friends will miss her honesty, sensitivity, sense of humor and loving expressions, and her strong love and commitment to children and animals.
