Kristine was born and raised in Metro-Detroit. Growing up, her parents taught her that family comes first, no matter what. Later the nuns at Mercy High School drilled that in just in case. Together, they enjoyed spending time at Green Lake, and bonding over their shared love of acting. Today much has changed. She is a devoted wife to her husband Greg, and is dedicated to carrying out her father's legacy of community service through making the Opioid Epidemic the National Emergency that it is - our PUBLIC ENEMY #1.
Kristine's life changed forever when she lost her stepson Drew to the opioid epidemic. This tragedy inspired her to fly to Washington and make this lock down case to Paul Ryan's team: "Sirs, you passed $45B in July's American Health Care Act. I've got 30,000 more dead Americans since. Where is the money?!" We then successfully negotiated a line item for Opioids into the SOTU, and BAM. $6 Billion resulted into the now passed budget. Yet it now needs to be appropriated correctly or it's a waste. This is the #1 reason to BUILD THE WALL NOW.
Her efforts also resulted in the founding of the Opioid Oath, an organization dedicated to bringing awareness to this issue. Their efforts include a Middle School Opioid Oath Tour, seeking to educate middle schoolers about the dangers of opioids. As well as, asking community members to sign a "Wall of Life", which signifies their oath to create safer community.
Bonds knows business. In 2007, Kristine co-founded Detroit Digital Advertising. As managing partner, she put American automakers first, providing GM, FCA and Ford by giving them the technological tools to overcome foreign competition. In just over a decade, her hard work and business savvy gave her the tools to oversee the creation of over 35 business ventures.
