Kristin ComptonStaff Writer

Kristin is a writer and researcher for DrugWatch. She has a background in legal studies and has previously worked for a law firm specializing in health law providing her with appropriate insight as to patients’ rights and a need to see that the healthcare industry acts responsibly in communicating with and caring for the welfare of the public.

With a strong desire to be a voice for others and a love of research and writing, Kristin initially had aspirations of attending law school. She instead worked “behind-the-scenes” as a paralegal while starting a family before branching out into roles focusing more on different genres of writing and even dabbling in marketing, not just in law but in the salon industry as well. Prior to coming to DrugWatch, Kristin worked as a reporter for the Gulf Breeze News in the Florida Panhandle as well as editor of Splash! Magazine.

During her time with the newspaper, Kristin covered City Hall meetings, including budget workshops and special meetings, where she tackled some more complex issues relating to municipal finances and investments, taxation, and litigious disputes. She also covered community events and interests providing exposure to relevant issues.

She can often be found perusing fashion magazines, reading a book, spending time with her husband, one of her four kids or two dogs, watching a movie, listening to music, pretending to do yoga, or enjoying the outdoors just about anywhere.
