Kristi is a wife, mother, and practicing yogi.
Kristi’s first job out of college was downtown at a television station. She’s excited to be back in the downtown area, one of her favorite Sioux Falls spots.
Kristi Kooima remembers riding the Sioux Falls bike trails as a little girl. Being young, it was hard for her to keep up with her brothers, so she traveled the trails in an unconventional way: riding in the front bicycle basket.
Keeping up is no longer a problem. After living in Omaha for seven years, Kristi has returned to Sioux Falls to serve as the account team manager at Click Rain, a leading role on the account team.
Advertising was a given for Kristi. She can't say why exactly, but she knew what she wanted. Originally from Viborg, S.D., she attended the University of South Dakota, receiving her bachelor of science in business administration with an emphasis in marketing. That led her straight into the advertising world, working for a local television broadcaster before joining ad agencies in Sioux Falls and Omaha.
A Viborg connection brought her to Click Rain. An opportunity to return to Sioux Falls prompted her to connect with Eric Ellefson, a partner at Click Rain and former Viborg resident.
“Kristi beams positivity and energy,” says Eric. “Combine that with her depth of marketing knowledge and multi-market experience, you can see why we are so excited to have her join the team. Most importantly, Kristi exemplifies the Click Rain culture and I’m really looking forward to seeing her impact on our company and clients alike.”
This weekend, Kristi will return to the bike trails with her family, but she’s playing it safe. Her children will be riding their own bikes—no basket rides this time around.More About Kristi
