Kristine is a true Southern California native who doesn’t plan on leaving the beautiful, warm weather soon. After graduating from California State University Long Beach with her bachelor's in Fashion Merchandising, Kristine dove straight into the fashion industry where she worked with brands like Urban Outfitters, Free People, Elizabeth Stone Jewelry, and PacSun to express her creative talents. After working in the industry for over 6 years in social media marketing, it was time for a much-needed change. With Orange County being the foodie central of California and her love of food photography and visiting new restaurants and cafes, she knew it would be an easy transition. She had used Jay’s catering for her college graduation party and other family events and fell in love with their famous palm sandwiches and tortellini with creamy pesto, so it was a no-brainer as to where she wanted to be.
With technology and social media becoming even more integrated into our daily lives, we were thrilled to add Kristine to the team as Marketing Manager. She runs our website and all our social accounts including Jay’s, Ellie’s Table, Grand Gimeno, Serra Plaza, OC Polo Club, The Estate on Second, Hangar 21, Rose Center, and POUR, so if you see a comment or like, she is the face behind the screen! Her favorite part of the job is getting to look at couples in love and food all day (literally) – all things that make people happy.
