Kristie began her career as a Sales Representative for Kraft Foods. After a short two years in the position, she was promoted to a Sales Analyst position in Cincinnati.

Kraft promoted her again after she graduated from Xavier with her MBA. Kristie worked with Kraft for a total of seven years in various positions.
After an extensive career in the midwest, she began to explore around the country a little. First, she explored New Jersey at Reckitt Benckiser as a Trade Marketing Manager for their Lysol brand.

For the last 18 months, Kristie has been working in Arkansas as a national account manager calling on Walmart.
