Employee Spotlights

KRISTINA GIRARD

Corporate Counsel

What made you choose to work in the telecommunications space?

My prior experience was working as an attorney in a traditional law firm environment so I was very excited about the opportunity to become a corporate counsel at Summit Broadband and quickly grew to love the telecommunications industry for its innovation and ability to affect people’s lives in a positive way.

What do you enjoy about working at Summit Broadband?

I really enjoy being a problem-solver and helping members of Summit Broadband succeed and overcome any legal hurdles they might encounter – be it a regulatory issue, contract negotiations, an auto collision, or a capital recovery claim.  It‘s great to be part of such a strong team of people who work hard every day to make communications possible for a lot of communities and businesses here in Florida.

As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?

Growing up in the Soviet Union, I always wished I lived in a free country and my dream came true when my family immigrated to the United States in 1991.  Ever since that move, I always wanted to become an attorney so I could better understand this country’s justice system and have the ability to help others with their legal problems.

Share a fun fact about Florida or what do you enjoy best about Florida?

Florida has more than 700 natural springs, more than anywhere else on the planet! My favorite springs in Florida are the Three Sisters Springs in Crystal River. The water in these springs is pristine and you can see manatees. It’s absolutely breathtaking.

Orlando Magic or Miami Heat?

Orlando Magic, of course, since Orlando is my home.
