Her dad was transferred there for work. Since then, Kristin has been unstoppable chasing her passion! From winning titles in local junior events and leagues, Kristin soon began a successful collegiate career bowling at Ohio State University. Kristin became one of Ohio State’s most decorated players. In four years of competition, Kristin was a three-time 1st Team All American selection by the National Collegiate Bowling Coaches Association.

Kristin briefly bowled on the Ladies Professional Bowlers Tour, with a high finish of 16th in Baltimore. The highlight of her tour experience was a 299 game. Kristin brought her talents to the Chicagoland, Illinois area. Kristin won back to back state USBC Women’s doubles titles in 2015 and 2016. Bowled a 300 game in 2017, and recently won the scratch all events title in 2021.
