Financial Services Professional
Kristy Nair, a Financial Services Professional at Strategic Financial Group, emanates a vibrant spirit that shines not only as a proud and devoted mom but also as the epitome of coolness. Infusing every endeavor with contagious humor and boundless energy, she stands as a beacon of positivity.
Hailing from a tiny, unnamed town in Western New York where she often felt like an outlier, Kristy earned a degree in Criminal Justice from the State University of New York, though the diploma now sits untouched, collecting dust on a shelf. While she now calls Houston home, the sweltering heat and discomfort in Houston’s weather often challenge her sense of fitting in. Despite her conflicted feelings, she amusingly enjoys recommending the city to others, except maybe for a couple of pleasant days each year, pointing out the only bright spots.
Twice elected as the Vice President of the Board of Directors for her community’s Home Owner’s Association, Kristy orchestrates a symphony of community connection and inclusion, at times resembling the dynamics of an intense yet close-knit family. Serving as Chair of the Social Committee and participating in the Pool and Architectural Review Committees, she dedicates her presence not just from personal interest, but also to fill the much-needed seats.
Kristy’s influence transcends her neighborhood’s boundaries, rippling across the city like a stone skimming water’s surface. With an adept ability to network, she becomes an ambassador for Pearland’s Greater Businesses, blending her love for community with a fervor for supporting friends, small businesses, women, and minorities. Engaging in various business and women’s entrepreneurial groups, she uplifts fellow business owners while openly acknowledging the learning curve they’re all navigating.
Her extensive network serves as a testament to the enduring impact she imparts on every individual she encounters, leaving no burned bridges or threats in her wake. In her newest role at Strategic Financial Group (SFG), Kristy’s commitment is intertwined with her purpose, playing a pivotal role in “We Rose,” a women’s empowerment group within the firm. Her advocacy goes beyond words, empowering women within and outside the firm, promoting financial education, and inspiring them to rise to their true potential.
Kristy’s dedication to change is a fiery force ignited by her experiences during her three-plus years in India. Possessing a global perspective that transcends borders and cultures, she infuses purpose and passion into every step she takes. Fluent in English, and moderately proficient in Hindi and Malayalam, her eloquence extends to her deft use of sarcasm, adding a touch of zest to her interactions.
Celebrating a decade of marriage with her husband Sujit, Kristy’s love story spans continents, and together, they embrace the journey with enthusiasm. Her aspiration to make her parents proud forms the bedrock of her drive, with her mother’s influence being especially significant, lending her much of her wit and humor.
Amidst the shadows cast by COVID, Kristy boldly emerged as the CEO & founder of “I am Lotus Consulting,” a social media marketing firm symbolizing the resilience of the lotus that flourishes even in the muddiest waters. Her current role is at SFG, as a financial services professional, which she feels is a serendipitous alignment, complements her diverse background, blending various titles into a harmonious whole. Exemplifying multitasking brilliance, unwavering dedication, and an essential sense of humor, Kristy embodies the essence of success in the contemporary world.
