Kris was born and raised in the Scrabble area of Berkeley county. She graduated from Hedgesville High School in 1995, and went on to West Virginia University where she completed a Doctorate of Pharmacy Degree from the School of Pharmacy in 2002. Following the completion of her degree at WVU she then spent 2 years working for a small chain pharmacy until May 2004 when she began working at a local independent pharmacy and realized that running an independent pharmacy was one of her goals. Those dreams came true in March of 2008 when she and a partner opened Reed's Pharmacy in Spring Mills.
Three years later, in May of 2011, she and her husband, Luke Knott, decided to open a pharmacy of their own in Shepherdstown, WV. Now Shepherdstown Pharmacy is thriving and proudly serving the surrounding community with their remarkable customer service!
