Kristina's devotion to small business started almost 20 years ago when she began working for her family’s company, 200 Pharmacy Inc. at 16 as a pharmacy technician. As an adult, Kristina worked for her family’s business for 8 years. She ultimately thrived in the position of Director of Business Development. In this position, she initialized her experience in the procurement sector. First working to get her family’s business certified with the Chicago Minority Supplier Development Council and thereafter attending conferences, matching opportunities and pre-bid meetings to establish the company’s reputability and brand in the government contracting industry, specifically within healthcare systems. Kristina was successful in acquiring several small contracts with hospitals like Rush, University of Chicago, and University of Illinois and health care organizations like Advocate.
In 2017 she transitioned from the family business to take on an opportunity with the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses program (10KSB), where her true passion was revealed, helping small businesses grow. This is where her foundation in outreach and small business education/training was established. Kristina was brought on as the outreach Director, charged with recruiting more minority and women owned business who qualified for the program. In just one year Kristina increased the minority participation from 18% to 32% and 35/65 men/ women split to 40/60. Given these results she was promoted to Outreach and Alumni Director for the program and became responsible for supporting scholars once they graduated with general advising and connections to small business resources.
After working with the Goldman Sachs program for 3 years Kristina made the decision to fully step into entrepreneurship and consulting for public and private organizations that support small businesses by offering coaching support in areas such as: MBE/WBE Certification Technical Assistance, Business Development, and Business Plan and Pitch Deck Creation. In December of 2020, Kristina was brought on as business advisor with the IL Small Business Development Center Network and in September 2021 as a business consultant for the Chicago Minority Supplier Development Council. In these roles she has created and facilitated small business workshops/trainings, organized small business networking events, and offer one-on- one business advising.
