Background & Experience

Kristen has deep roots in both Alabama and Louisiana. She graduated from St. Joseph’s Academy in 2008 and received a Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology from LSU. At that time, she was selected to represent the sugar cane industry of Iberville Parish as the 2009 Sugar Cane Queen, where she competed at the state level and was awarded first runner up and Miss Congeniality. This led to opportunities in Louisiana’s thriving film industry as a spokesperson for tv, film, and commercial as well as some behind the scene work as a casting recruiter for shows like Big Brother and MasterChef.

Kristen’s diverse background has provided her with the ability to work tirelessly under pressure, offering valuable skillsets to her clients. After college, Kristen started a nonprofit organization called Arts For Elders to raise money to bring entertainment and activities to local nursing homes. Her work transitioned into a position at Poydras Home working with the residents with Alzheimer’s disease and other related memory-support needs. Her passion for the elderly has influenced her real estate career towards multifamily, hospitality, and assisted living facilities, though she is able to handle all type of real estate transactions. She works well with people of all types, ages, and abilities and can adapt seamlessly to any environment. As a strong advocate for her clients, Kristen is confident in her real estate knowledge and training. Call her today to see how she can help you with your commercial needs.
