Born in St. Petersburg Russia, Kristina moved to the United States at the age of fifteen with her newly adoptive family. She entered her first day of high school not speaking a word of English, but with persistence and determination went on to complete a Bachelors in Interior Design at the Art Institute of Colorado where she was honored with the Most Achieved Student Certificate upon graduation. Kristina loves a great challenge!
She worked as an interior designer at Kimberly Timmons Interiors, JV Interiors, and Daltile, before deciding to further her education in design. She is currently enrolled in the class of 2020 Masters in Architecture program and the University of Colorado.
As an architectural designer at WORKSHOP8, Kristina assists with all aspects of design and production for projects. Kristina was drawn to WORKSHOP8 because as a small design company, she is able to contribute to projects from start to finish and utilize her full range of skills.
