American Financial Partners has some impressive and hardworking people on our team. Each month, we’ll be featuring an employee on our newsletter and our social media accounts.
Kristine Merrill is the Senior Credit Analyst at AFP. Her experience and the knowledge that she has gained through her years of employment at AFP have made her a true leader in the credit department. Her solid work ethic comes from her background and competitiveness in sports throughout the years, as well as growing up working hard- as any farm girl knows.
Having grown up on a farm near Canby, Minnesota, she knew that small-town life is where it’s at, and she wanted to make her life back home. After graduating from Minnesota State University Mankato with a B.S. degree in Business Management along with minors in Business Administration and Economics, Kristine moved back to her hometown with her daughter, Ashlynn.
Ashlynn is in second grade this year and loves to keep her mom on her toes. She is very active, especially on her school’s wrestling team! Ashlynn also loves going to the farm to visit grandma and grandpa and playing with her pup, Abby.
Kristine loves being outside, playing any sport she can, and cheering on her daughter in all of her activities. She also loves to travel, recently coming back from one of her adventures in Nashville! Her favorite type of music is country and her favorite artist is Thomas Rhett.
Kristine is an important member of AFP’s team because of her enthusiasm and expertise in her area of work. AFP is fortunate to have someone as hardworking as Kristine on our team!
