In 2002, she founded Brain Traffic, a content strategy consultancy whose clients include AT&T, Autodesk, Thedacare, Carnegie Mellon University, BMC Software, Merck, Best Buy, Target, and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. She was instrumental in establishing content strategy as an essential practice in user experience design, communications strategy, and organizational design. Her seminal article, “The Discipline of Content Strategy”, was published in 2008 by A List Apart, the popular online magazine for web professionals.

Kristina is also the founder of Confab Events and she regularly conducts online seminars about content strategy and works closely with Fortune 500 companies as both a speaker and consultant. Onstage, Kristina is a celebrated speaker, well-known for her humorous, practical, and inspiring talks. She has appeared at over 50 conferences all over the United States, Canada, and Europe.

In 2011, the SXSW Interactive conference recognized Kristina as one of the industry’s top thought leaders. She recently appeared on the celebrated 2012 200 Minnesotans You Should Know list, published each year by Twin Cities Business. Her articles have been featured in a variety of national publications, and she has been interviewed by dozens of other bloggers, podcasters, online magazines, business magazines, and other media for her insights on content strategy and the importance of treating content as a business asset.
