about kristine

Kristine joined Boyum Barenscheer in October 2013 as the firm’s Administrator and HR Director.  She has over 20 years of experience in Human Resources working in a variety of industries including, Best Buy and the Margaret A. Cargill Philanthropies, where as a part of the senior leadership team, she established a credible HR department and introduced the concepts of strategic planning and formal organizational goal setting.

At BB, Kristine is accountable for the Administrative, IT, and Marketing functions of the firm.  She currently has a team of eight that play an instrumental role in the on-going success of the firm. 

When Kristine is not working, you will find her and her husband walking their two rescue dogs, Buddy the Elf (since he was adopted in December) and Ollie, come snow, rain, or shine.  Kristine also enjoys a life-long appreciation for the art of dance and was a member of the Minnesota Viking Cheerleaders in 1986 and 1987; she is still an active member with the MVC alumni today.

Kristine and her husband, Phillip reside in Lakeville.

My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.
