Kristin B. Wright
I grew up in Grosse Pointe, Michigan and got my B.A. in history from Michigan State and my law degree from the University of Michigan. I practiced law for a brief stint at a big firm in Washington, D.C. and then moved to central Virginia, where I've been a federal judicial clerk, a small town general practice attorney handling everything from divorce to personal injury to criminal defense, and a local government attorney. I live way out in the country with my husband, my two sons, and my beagle Indiana Jones.

I’ve had a pretty strange collection of non-lawyer jobs (more material!). Before law school, in no particular order and all before I was 24 years old, I was an ice cream scooper, a telemarketer, a Civil War living history reenactor, a home alarm monitor, a cafeteria plate-scraper, a paralegal, a papergirl, a U.S. Senate intern, and a receptionist.
