Cristin Finnigan has been a space enthusiast since she saw Halley's Comet when she was six years old. She was so excited about it, she started checking out books about comets from her elementary school on library day, drawing and labeling "diagrams" and calling it her "research." That excitement was reinforced when her dad took her to Space Camp in Huntsville, Alabama a few years later. From then on, she has kept her eyes to the sky.
Cristin turned her love of research into a career as a paralegal. She is currently a student in the University of North Dakota's Space Studies Master of Science program where she specializes in space law and policy, and is the AIAA Region V Deputy Director - Public Policy and Twin Cities Section Public Policy Officer. She also co-owns and co-manages a robotics fabrication shop in the Minneapolis area.
