Born and raised in Rhode Island, Kirsten was awarded a Bachelor of Science from the University of Rhode Island. Her client services skills were honed early on living in Copenhagen while raising her family. Gaining fluency in Danish served Kirsten well as she rose to management levels in the hospitality and retail industries while in country. Her focus on thoroughness and efficiency, gleaned from her education and experiences, served her well while managing a document editing team at McLaughlin Research (Middletown, RI), a contractor for the Naval Undersea Warfare Center.
Back in Rhode Island after 21 years overseas, Kirsten is enthusiastically applying her professional experience to the rigors of the financial services arena.
