Kristine is a trained public speaker and facilitator who holds a Masters of International Studies specializing in Rural Development. Prior to joining StartingBloc, she worked in international development for six years, founding and leading teams across the African continent and in India. Kristine is convinced we can imagine and build systems that enable people and planet to thrive, especially if there is sufficient coffee.
