Event Sales Manager/Wedding Specialist, The Driskill
A Certified Meeting Professional and a Hyatt certified Wedding Specialist, Kristin brings not only quantifiable expertise but also an undeniable passion for the industry. She knew she wanted to be a part of this meaningful profession during her first college internship in Chicago. “I took the train and a bus to get to an unpaid internship every day and was in love,” Kristin says. Her love for the industry combined with a strong dedication to her clients, commitment to detail, and extensive behind-the-scenes organization helps ensure each wedding or special event at The Driskill is as smooth and stress-free as possible.
She approaches weddings from the truly held belief that the entire wedding experience should be stress-free: a couple should only feel excitement in anticipation of joining their lives together. This belief is a big part of her dedication to providing fun, meticulous advanced planning. Drawing from her experience of 200+ weddings, she skillfully anticipates every potential way things could go awry—like a guest bringing an unannounced date—to ensure every event runs smoothly. She also knows that no matter how much preparation is done, it can be hard to unwind during the hours leading up to a couple’s nuptials. That is why she’s added a wellness component, led by one of the premier instructors at Wanderlust yoga, to relax and peacefully anticipate the joy of the day.
In addition to sharing The Driskill’s passion for flawless wedding and special event planning, Kristin also shares The Driskill’s love of dogs. She and her Jack Russell Terrier, Sophie, can be seen experiencing all Austin has to offer. When she is not spending time with Sophie, she can be found walking dogs at Austin Animal Center. Her love and compassion for dogs is undeniable, which means she will happily incorporate a couple’s pet into their wedding ceremony at The Driskill.
