Kris began writing and editing the quarterly financial newsletter, Happenings, for White Raven Financial in 2005. She was living in Korea teaching English when she jumped at the chance to stretch her literary muscle in the financial realm. Kris brings a global perspective to the business and is proud to work for a company that has embraced the challenge of specializing in SRI – sustainable, responsible, impact investing and financial planning.
Kris lives in Auckland, New Zealand’s largest city, with her partner, Simon, and children, Aydin and Anaïs. Exploring new places and spending time in nature with her family has created some of her fondest memories. In the year she turned 40, she had a lot of fun coming up with 40 things she’d never experienced before including honey harvesting and the Tongariro Crossing, one of New Zealand’s Great Walks. Her everyday happy place is on and near the water, rowing and running.
