She's worked on several projects in the Hampton Roads area as well as being awarded a Grant for Historical Preservation from ASID in 2000. What she enjoys most is combining the old with the new creating a functional and aesthetically pleasing environment for each individual client.

Kristy raised one beautiful Daughter in Virginia Beach and after graduating from ODU, she resides in Charlottesville. When not working hard for her clients in the Willis Showroom, you can find her on the beach basking in the sun or playing volleyball. Or she could be in the garden creating beautiful outdoor oasis'.
