ISLAND GIRL KRISTINA
This months Island Girl is "Miss Siesta Key", Kristina Whalen from Fort Myers, FL. Kristina has studied various types of dance since the age of three and views dance as her one true passion. In addition to dance, she enjoys traveling, cooking healthy vegetarian meals, exercising at the University of Florida stadium, spending time with her family and friends, advocating for dating and domestic violence organizations and of course, interacting with the Siesta Key community as Miss Siesta Key USA 2017. She tries to visit Siesta Beach as often as possible, usually twice a month, "not nearly as often as I would like to!"
Kristina stays incredibly busy as a full-time college student with a full-time job at a law firm. She's attending John River State College, majoring in business administration and minoring in dance and hopes to attend the University of Florida in the Spring of 2017. Watch her in the Miss Florida USA pageant July 13-16.
