Kristina's love for computers and graphic design has been used to help many individuals and businesses for the past 25 years. She built an online presence for people starting back with AOL "communities" in the late 90's and has transitioned throughout the digital landscape ever since. Over the years, Kristina has been involved in building hundreds of websites, from e-commerce, blogs, directories, etc. She quickly realized having a great website wasn't enough, people needed to know and this is why she created logos, business cards, post cards and other branding material for her earliest clients.
Kristina launched her career as an advertising and marketing consultant in 2007 when she had the opportunity to be part of a startup magazine. From the building of business relationships for advertising and printing, graphic and website design as well as development and maintenance; the tremendous industry knowledge and skillset that she developed afforded her the opportunity to collaborate with her local community. Kristina’s experiences during that time are what facilitated her realization that she had a passion for helping small businesses with their marketing efforts. In the years since, she has sharpened her skillset and become an expert in the industry offering business/marketing coaching, virtual showcases, marketing services and classes.
Beyond her immense marketing knowledge, Kristina went to school for her Microsoft Certified Solutions Engineer (MCSE). She uses her experience in IT and offers her specialized experience in website creation, streamlining systems and processes, understanding analytics, optimizing SEO and thoroughly understands all the facets of digital marketing that allow for online success.
Although Kristina’s vision has narrowed to helping wedding professionals, she remains sought out by business owners across a multitude of industries. Kristina’s work amongst the wedding industry started alongside a local DJ in the early 2000’s. The work she did then became a steppingstone for working with a local venue assisting with wedding planning and other event details. Being a change agent and a connector, Kristina has merged all the things she loves most - coaching, systems and processes, digital marketing and events and dived deep into the wedding industry in 2020 starting a globally ranked podcast that offers digestible and implementable marketing tips to wedding professional and wedding planning tips to engaged couples. After months of meeting and interviewing wedding professional and engaged couples and listening to their pain points, the plan for an all-encompassing online wedding community was implemented... The Ring The Bling And All The Things Online Community!
Kristina feels privileged to own and operate numerous brands and businesses with her loving husband, Josh Stubblefield who has shared her passion for results and serving the businesses that make up the heart of any community. They are supported by an amazing team who believes in them and their joint mission to provide genuine feedback (real talk) , superior results and proven solutions - the foundation of any successful business.
Outside of work, Kristina enjoys spending time with family, her four fur babies, being involved in her family’s stock car racing business as well as the occasional few minutes of downtime.
Kristina is a proud member of the Association of Bridal Consultants and The St. Matthew’s Chamber of Commerce. She is a frequent philanthropic practitioner and volunteers her time and talents for multiple local non-profits.
