She feels blessed to live in close proximity to her two children and five grandchildren who reside in and around Hilo. Kristine brings a lifetime of experience as an environmental and social justice activist to her current position as Executive Director for Recycle Hawaii. She spends her downtime making art, gardening, and practicing yoga.
