Kristen joined the firm as a member of the Accounting and Reporting Services team. Her work experience includes full-charge bookkeeping services as well as income tax preparation for individuals, corporations and partnerships. Her education includes attendance at Arizona Western College where she studied accounting and an income tax course at University of Texas at Tyler.

Kristen moved to East Texas in 1998 where she worked for Braly and Moore, P.C. for over 11 years. She then relocated back to Arizona to be near her family and friends. However, she felt that living in East Texas was where God wanted her and her family to be, so she moved back to East Texas in March 2013. She has been married to her husband Bobby since 1996 and they have two children, Ruby and Bobby Jr. (Bubba). They are members of Green Acres Baptist Church South Campus.

Kristen’s mother gave her a Bible after she was baptized and wrote the following passage in the cover: 'Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.' Proverbs 3:5-6. She firmly believes in this passage and leans on it whenever she has any doubts in life. We may not always understand when and where He leads us, but we do know there is a purpose on why He is guiding us there.

"But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you." — Matthew 6:33
