The first person you will likely see when entering the building or calling the store is Kristen Gravelle, our Administrative Specialist. Kristen was born and raised in the St. Joseph/Benton Harbor area and moved to the Grand Rapids area in 2000 to attend Grand Valley State University. She loved the area so much that she decided to stay permanently and now resides in Rockford. She is married and has a 9-year-old son, a cat and a Mini Rex bunny – and family life means the world to her! Kristen loves photography and being outdoors, and loves combining the two – her favorite photo subjects are birds, flowers, the moon, and occasionally people. She also has a love for jewelry and does direct sales when she’s not at NKC. Kristen also enjoys coloring and reading in her spare time.
