After placing 1st Runner-Up in the 2004 Philadelphia IMTA Competition, Kristina’s Pop vocal talent took her to NYC to compete at the summer IMTA Convention. This triple threat landed her first musical theater audition in late 2004 for the mainstage production of “Annie” at the famed Bucks County Playhouse. More roles followed in many productions, including “State Fair,” “The Sound of Music,” “Seussical,” and “Gypsy,” in which Kristina played Baby Louise, working with Joyce DeWitt, star of “Three’s Company”. She has placed in many vocal competitions including 1st Runner-Up in the 2006 National American Miss NJ State Pageant, one of the Top 7 Teen Fiona Finalists in the 2009 SHREK The Musical on Broadway’s “Not Your Ordinary Princess Contest” (sponsored by Dreamworks and Nickelodeon), and 1st place in Musical Theater at the 2012 NJ NATS. Kristina is most proud of performing as Baby Louise in the 2007-2008 National Tour of the Broadway Musical “Gypsy,” traveling to 47 states and Canada for 9 months. She has performed at Carnegie Hall at the 2011 New York Pops Holiday Concert and the New York Pops 29th Birthday Gala, honoring Broadway composers Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty. Off-Broadway she played Aquata in the pilot production of Disney’s The Little Mermaid Jr. She was also excited to do the Reading of “Clear and Bright” at The Theater Project. Kristina performed in the 2011 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade during Savannah Outen’s performance of her single “No Place Like Here” on the Zhu Zhu Pets’ Float, and also recorded background vocals for the song. She also appeared on ABC’s “One Life to Live” and in Nickelodeon’s Big Time Rush Music Video for “Famous.”

From these experiences, Kristina has transitioned into writing and recording her own Pop music. Kristina’s original songs “No Doubt,” “Won’t Wait Forever,” and “Calendar” are now available on iTunes and have been heard on iHeartRadio, Fanlala Radio, Women of Substance Radio, and Australia’s Stars of Tomorrow.

Throughout 2013-2014, Kristina's "Sticks and Stones" message reached thousands of teens and tweens on a 17-week concert tour promoting Anti-Bullying at schools and venues across the country. While on tour, Kristina had the opportunity to visit and perform at Children's Hospitals, including Ryan Seacrest's Seacrest Studios in Atlanta where she did an in-studio interview and performance. During the 2014 holiday season, "The Girl With The Big Pink Heart" was honored to help make Christmas wishes come true for some very deserving kids, working with the 2014 TODAY Show Toy Drive, Ronald McDonald House Charities, United Way, and Angels For Kids. In March 2014, Teen Celeb site Fanlala named Kristina as one of their "favorite stars on the rise." 

2015 was a banner year for Kristina, with performances at Girls' Life Magazine & iHeartRadio's Z104.3's One Direction Concert Pre-Party with cast members of Nickelodeon's Bella and the Bulldogs and Skylar Stecker (Baltimore, MD), Albany Back To School Expo with Disney Stars Calum Worthy ("Dez" from Austin & Ally) and Peyton Meyer ("Lucas" from Girl Meets World), opening act for Heffron Drive (featuring Kendall Schmidt of Big Time Rush) at State Fair Meadowlands, New York State Fair, Six Flags Great Adventure, Hersheypark, and more.
