Kristine is a mother of two and a former journalist. With Jersey girl roots, she grew up in South Florida and attended school in New York, where she lived and worked for most of her life. Kristine credits her mother, a devout Rachmaninoff fan, for passing along her love of classical music. Kristine says that classical music has always been there for her in the background of her life. She is now happy to welcome it to the foreground.
