Kristine Trinh is originally from Vietnam. She came to Canada as an international student at the age of 15. She completed her high school diploma in Toronto and then moved to Saskatchewan to attend the University of Saskatchewan. After four years, Kristine graduated with a Bachelor of Arts with a major in Economics and a minor in Computer Science.

While attending the University, she volunteered and was involved with different programs and events at the International Student and Study Aboard (ISSAC) Centre, where she was able to support and provide guidance to other international students and newcomers. Later, her professional careers are always related to the settlement and integration sector, from recruiting foreign job seekers for Saskatchewan-based companies to assisting SINP Entrepreneur candidates to start up their business in Saskatchewan’s rural areas. Before joining SAISA, Kristine was an Employment Counsellor/Training Coordinator at Saskatoon Open Door Society.

Given the experience as an immigrant, Kristine always found joy and rewarding feeling when she can help newcomers and their families to settle and integrate themselves into Canadian society. Her goal is to contribute and create further positive impacts on the community.
