Welcome to my blog! My name is Kristin Stith. I was born and raised in Southern California, most recently coming from Newport Beach, CA. I am incredibly lucky to have been raised by a huge, loud, loving, and unbelievably supportive family.
I am currently a full-time student in the MBA program at the University of Nevada (UNR). I am still trying to find my place in the Biggest Little City. Where I just came from is a far cry from the small town charm of Reno. 4 years ago as a student-athlete, I received my BA in Communication and Marketing from UNR. From there I entered the “Real World” and moved back to California, where I helped run and operate a small family business. During this time I saw the ups, downs, and heartaches of running a business. I witnessed growth, I witnessed failure, I witnessed what “hard work” truly means, and I witnessed what it takes to run a business. I found a niche for myself in business and back to school I went. Like most people who decide to enter graduate school, I simply wanted to challenge myself further, learn about something I have a passion for, and create a better opportunity for myself. Now here I am.
My inspirations: Honesty, hard work, simplicity, brilliant ideas, and creativity.
I moved to Reno from Newport Beach in December of 2011. The next question people typically ask me immediately after I mention this is: “Why on earth did you leave Newport to come to RENO?” My response is: “Where do I begin and how much time do you have?”
