What is she known for? Kristi started at 3rd for all four of her seasons at MTSU. Despite starting and playing in 169 games over four years, Kristi's first career home run didn't come until a few weeks into her senior season. She also played for the Puerto Rican national team.

Here's something interesting... Kristi's career in athletics began in Little League Baseball, not softball. She played five years in Little League before beginning her softball career in middle school. She skipped a year of ball as she entered high school, but impressed over her final three years and earned a collegiate scholarship.

What's she up to now? Kristi is a personal trainer, certified by the American College of Sports Medicine. She owns her own personal training business and offers training that is individualized & designed specifically to meet client goals. Kristi helped coach at her alma mater after her career ended and before her graduation. She also worked in the strength and conditioning department during that time.

Quotable quotes: "I want to use personal training as a vehicle to show people how improving their health and fitness can impact their lives in a very positive way. I want to share with others the impact of my own personal experience, and transfer some of my passion into their own lives... my ultimate goal as a trainer is to help others build confidence and momentum."

Contact information: .Kristi's website is still in the works, but you can find her on all of the major social networks, including Facebook; Twitter; Instagram; LinkedIn; and Pinterest
