Calling Maui Home
Kristy has lived on Maui for more than 7 years; she’s originally from Texas, where she grew up in a small town. She remains a huge advocate for supporting local business.
“One of the things I love most about Maui is how there’s a small community feel, much like my childhood,” she explains. “I’m so happy to call Maui home; I love getting to know my neighbors and island businesses so we can all help lift each other up!”
We are True Professionals
Kristy has a degree in engineering and worked in that field for many years. In Texas, Kristy also worked in sales, where she enjoyed touring businesses and helping clients succeed.
Kristy’s husband Kevin was a previous Maui resident, so they spent more than 10 years visiting friends and family here before making the move. Kevin owns a small local business, and Kristy has helped boost their presence through marketing, social media, rebranding, website work and community outreach. She has also aligned with local nonprofits like Make-A-Wish Hawai’i & Maui Nui Resource Council.
Priorities in the Right Place
With a passion for getting to know individuals and their stories, Kristy is our client specialist for a reason! She takes great pride in helping locals and small business owners grow and spotlight their talents.
Family is profoundly important to Kristy as well. She is actively involved in her child’s school, where she has served as PTA President. Kristy believes in investing in children’s education and lending a helping hand when possible.
“I love that this community supports each other,” Kristy says. “The overall love the island pours out is what really resonates with me. I also enjoy the outdoors and Maui delivers on that one! With the diversity of microclimates and so many places to explore, there are always new adventures and special memories with loved ones.”
A Healthy Perspective on Life & Work
Kristy makes exercise, health and wellness a regular part of her routine. Her sense of discipline, determination and enthusiasm are important qualities in the workout room, but they’re just as powerful in her role as client specialist!
“I was really inspired to work with MVM after I met Kiaora through a mutual friend,” Kristy explains. “I was drawn by her energy and smile. Kiaora has such a positive light and focus, that it really resonated with me. As an opportunity arose, I was thrilled to be able to support her in MVM’s mission to help enrich, grow, and guide Maui brands.”
