Kristin is majoring in Business Organization Management with a minor in Economics. She is the daughter of David and Donna Findley and is from Maryville, Tennessee. She has been a part of the Fighting Scots Volleyball Team for the past four seasons. In that time, she has posted 1,312 kills, 228 Service Aces, 1,147 digs, and 129 blocks. In her freshman year, Kristin was named to the GSAC All-Freshman and All-Conference Teams and was also named the 2008 GSAC Freshman of the Year.
