Before joining Spitfire, Kristiana got a firsthand look at the policymaking process at the state level while interning at the Massachusetts State Senate. There, she focused on stakeholder engagement and translated legal jargon into layman’s terms for bill summaries. Previously, Kristiana interned at the ACLU of Massachusetts, where she wrote blog posts and conducted policy analysis to support the ACLUM’s local racial justice campaigns.
A proud DMV native, Kristiana graduated from Tufts University in Massachusetts with a B.A. in American Studies in May 2017.

Her love of music lives on, and she can often be found attending various concerts and shows in DC.
