“Family Is Not An Important Thing. It’s Everything.” – Michael J. Fox
As a wife and mother of three, Kristina knows the power of faith and family are the nucleus of life. Growing up in a first generation immigrant household with five siblings, Kristina watched her parents work hard as they built a rewarding new life in America. She learned the power of hard work at a young age. Passionate about makeup and skincare, Kristina took her passion for beauty and aesthetics and would practice applying makeup on her cousins, siblings, aunts and neighbors. Her hobby evolved over the years into a viable business. In 2005, she opened the doors to her studio, Bride On Location, where for the last 15 years, she’s been a professional makeup artist, known for getting brides wedding day ready. Kristina is well-known in her community for having the best products that boost confidence while enhancing natural beauty. When Kristina isn’t driving a carpool or planning and preparing family meals, she invests her time creating her own cosmetic range to benefit women in her community. Kristina feels best when she’s giving back to others.
