“I am passionate about caring for individuals and their families, helping them protect the assets they’ve worked hard to earn and helping them pass on a legacy they are proud of,”Kristina Shover explains. As important, she adds, is helping clients protect their assets while they are still living, guiding them in selecting individuals to assist them with financial and healthcare decisions during life.
As a graduate student in law school, Shover worked as legal assistant at several prominent law firms. While continuing to work full time by day, she pursued her law degree through night courses at the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law. Her work at litigation-focused law firms serving corporate clients had her originally contemplating a career in civil litigation and potentially criminal law. Ultimately, Kristina found, there would be greater satisfaction in serving individuals and families through estate planning and administration and elder law.
Often, Shover finds, when new clients come in seeking advice, “what they think they need turns out to be a bit different from the recommendation we may offer once their situation and types of assets they own are clarified.” With some of the financial protections offered during the pandemic now going away, planning becomes even more important.
Kristina’s husband, Cory Shover, meanwhile is a manager of an Alter Domus financial reconciliation team. Together, they have their hands full with highly precocious, 21-month-old twin sons.
As she launches her career helping families through estate planning and elder law, Rebecca W. Geyer & Associates is certainly proud to welcome its newest associate, Kristina Shover.
