Kristin currently works as art director at Bitch Media, an independent media organization whose mission is to provide and encourage an engaged, thoughtful feminist response to mainstream media and pop culture. There, she has been able to prove that thoughtful design drives readership, builds community, and makes a difference.

In addition to designing Bitch, Kristin is a freelance designer, educator, and former vice president of AIGA Portland (the professional organization for design). She has worked with sustainable design and design community initiatives for a variety of clients, including AIGA Portland's SHIFT, the sustainability team (established in 2008, now part of their social change project Design for Good), and the Exploregon zine project; Worldstudio's Urban Forest Project; and Design Week Portland.

Kristin serves as an assistant professor at Pacific Northwest College of Art (PNCA), where she runs the senior studio in the illustration department, moonlights in various communication and collaborative design courses, and mentors thesis students.
