Kristina graduated from the Bachelor of Design in Architecture at the University of Sydney in 2009.
She was placed on the Deans Honour list for academic achievement in 2008 and 2009 and she was also co-winner of the 2009 Arthur Baldwinson Memorial Prize in Australian Architectural History.
In 2010 she spent 18 months circumnavigating Australia in a 4wd before joining Hill Thalis at the end of 2011. In 2014, she completed her Masters of Architecture at the University of Newcastle achieving Class 1 Honours and was also awarded the Dean of Architecture Medal.
