Kristine

Kristine moved to Idaho from North Carolina in July 2021, and four days later, Howell Orthodontics and Kristine found each other. The rest is history. Kristine worked as a preschool and kindergarten teacher for over 20 years, and she has been working in the dental field for over five years. She feels fulfilled by helping others and giving back, and she loves smiling and getting others to smile. Kristine is blessed with two boys who have made their way to Florida. Kristine loves going into the outdoors, hiking and biking, and she went whitewater rafting for the first time ever in Idaho. Her superpower would be to have more versions of herself to do more things throughout the day.
