Kristi grew up in Alaska and California, where she had success as a competitive swimmer and later a cross-country runner.  Swimming and running led to triathlons, and Kristi initially took up road cycling to improve her triathlon bike leg.  After moving to Melbourne in 2012, and giving birth to her son in 2014, Kristi chose to focus on one sport and is enjoying returning to racing after a 2.5 year hiatus.  Most recently she took 2nd in the National Gran Fondo Championships, 3rd in the Dirty Gran Fondo, and 6th in the Victorian Criterium Championships.
