Tina was born in Englewood, Colorado, and raised in Mesa, Arizona. Shortly after graduating from Westwood High School she moved to Montana. During her childhood, Tina and her twin sister Tiffany would visit her grandparents every summer in Montana. Tina knew from a very young age that after high school she was moving to Montana and leaving the heat of Arizona behind.
Tina attended Flathead Valley Community College and received her Associate’s Degree in Forest Technology. Tina’s class was the last class to graduate from the original downtown Kalispell campus. Tina moved to Great Falls with her son Paul to be closer to family. Tina met her husband Joel at the church they both attended. Tina and Joel worked together as youth group leaders at their church and were married in 2002. Tina’s first job in the law world was with a bankruptcy attorney where she worked for 8.5 years. Tina then moved to a large law firm in Great Falls until she and her husband Joel moved to Kalispell, Montana in 2010 after their last son graduated from high school. Tina worked for Johnson, Berg & Saxby, PLLP until she began her career with Gravis Law, PLLC on November 1, 2019, where she has rejoined Mary Kate Moss who she previously worked with at JBS.
Together, Tina and Joel have six sons and 21 grandchildren.
Outside of work, Tina enjoys camping, hiking, kayaking, scrapbooking and spending time with family, especially her grandchildren!
