Class of 2014
When Kristy came to Regent Law, all she knew was that her interest in the legal field looked something like caring for “the least of these.” Regent was just the place to discover the calling God had for her. Through her work with the Center, her path became brighter and brighter before her. She had the opportunity to intern with the Kansas Department for Children and Families addressing policy on children sexually exploited for commercial purposes.
Her experience there led to a full-time position after graduation.
She currently serves as Strategic Partnerships Liaison for the Faith-based and Community Initiatives division of the Department for Children and Families in Topeka, Kansas. Her job requires a working knowledge of the intersection between child welfare issues and the legal aspects of building a case to prosecute perpetrators. The position provides a unique opportunity to work in tandem with the Kansas Attorney General’s office, the Agency’s foster care providers and community partners across the State to implement statutory requirements for responding to this issue. She gives credit for her successes to a strong work ethic cultivated by the rigorous academics of Regent’s program, the Center’s support, and most of all, God’s divine positioning and favor on her life.
