Marketing / BookkeepingKristin officially joined the staff at James Bond Family Dentistry in the Spring of 2014, but has been a frequent visitor over the past 3 years, and especially since the arrival of her and Dr. Bond’s daughter Felicity in July 2013. Kristin was born and raised in Hamburg, Germany and moved to Bozeman in 2000, where she graduated from Montana State University with a Bachelors degree in Consumer Science and a minor in Business Administration in 2004. After that she enjoyed several years as the office manager at Mountain Sky Guest Ranch in beautiful Paradise Valley. Kristin not only greatly enjoyed the daily interactions with guests from all over the world, but also the occasional wrangling or hiking guide duties – a special perk of working at a guest ranch. In 2008, Kristin moved back to Bozeman to join RightNow Technologies, which was later acquired by Oracle. After 1 ½ years in Business Development, Kristin then spent several years as Field Marketing Manager, fulfilling various duties in support of the North America sales team, helping to market RightNow’s Customer Service Software Solutions. Kristin enjoys spending most of her free time with Felicity; together the two like to explore Bozeman, go for stroller runs and take their dog Kimber for walks. Kristin also loves to hike, go horseback riding, cook and bake and enjoy all the wonderful outdoor activities Bozeman has to offer, together with her husband, Dr James Bond, their daughter Felicity and black lab Kimber.
