Getting to know Kristi Dement. I was born and raised in Holland, Michigan. My great-grandmother was originally from Holland, Netherlands. After graduating from West Ottawa High School, I completed my bachelors degree in psychology from Michigan State University’s Honors College in East Lansing, Michigan just three years later.
Since I did not want to meet someone who wanted to stay in the cold six-month-long winters of Michigan, I met my husband Glen online. He lived in Maryland at the time I was finishing my last year at MSU. We got married and I moved to the Baltimore area for a year.
When he had an opportunity to transfer with his work to the Raleigh area in North Carolina, November of 1999, I wholeheartedly supported it. This Michigan girl thought Maryland weather would be warm enough, but going further South sounded even better to me!
I went back to school to earn my masters degree in library science from North Carolina Central University in 2006. I have been a school librarian and professional writer since then. I look forward to serving more bed and breakfast owners in this new year.
If writing is just “not your thing” (and/or you just do not have time as a busy innkeeper), hiring me is a great solution to getting you more traffic to your website through a regularly updated blog with fresh content for the search engines! I can also set up your social media business profiles on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Linked In. I look forward to helping you book more rooms in your bed and breakfast throughout this New Year!
