Before law school, Kristina worked for a member of the United States Senate in Washington D.C., attending briefings, meeting with interest groups, and conducting research on energy, small business, government operations and environment issues for the senator. During law school, Kristina clerked for the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee, Subcommittee on Immigration, Refugees and Border Security. As a legal clerk, Kristina analyzed pending legislation and amendments to provide vote recommendations, and researched and drafted legislation on a wide variety of issues, including human trafficking, labor tracking and human smuggling, and, most notably, the Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act (introduced in 2015).

After being admitted to the Georgia Bar, Kristina returned to Washington, D.C. and served as Legislative Counsel and Director of the Victims’ Rights Caucus in the United States House of Representatives. She provided advice and counsel to a member of Congress on pending legislation and developments related to health care, education, science, budget, tax, trade, crime and victims’ rights, and appropriations, and managed the 85-member bipartisan Victims’ Rights Caucus, helping to advance crime victim initiatives through the legislative process. After three years in the House, Kristina returned to her hometown of Atlanta, Georgia, to practice law.
