Keirsten was a 1970s Montana transplant from California, spending her teen years in Whitefish, and then attending university in Bozeman. She later worked for several years with an international non-profit based organization out of Washington, DC.
The organization focused on community development and maternal/child health programs in southern Africa. She made numerous trips to countries in southern Africa to visit in-country projects. Eventually, the green forests and mountains of northwest Montana (and her mom) drew her home again to Whitefish, where she has lived since. Since returning to the Flathead, she has worked mainly in the health care and legal fields, and has been with Henning, Rutz & McCormack since 2005. She especially enjoys writing and researching medical issues related to the firm’s various cases.
When not working, Keirsten can be found making jewelry, reading, hanging out with her boyfriend or occasionally exercising.
