Each year the BIC invites one of our outstanding alumni to return for Homecoming and share a lecture with our students, faculty, and alumni. This year we are thrilled to have Kristina “Krissy” Doerner Guidi (’00), a Baylor Regent and attorney at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, as our distinguished guest. We recently interviewed Ms. Guidi to learn more about her journey since graduating from Baylor. We hope you enjoy the interview, and we hope you will join us for her Zoom lecture on October 16 at 2:45 pm. Ms. Guidi will speak on the topic “Living the Examined Life at Baylor and Beyond.” Learn more.
What year did you graduate from Baylor? What did you study?
I graduated in 2000. I was a University Scholar and a pre-law student. I was and continue to be interested in law and government and took several political science classes.
Tell us some about your career and journey since graduating from Baylor.
After graduating from Baylor, I attended Harvard Law School. I joined a law firm after graduation and spent a little over twelve years practicing in Biglaw. My practice focused on securities enforcement and litigation matters. I transitioned to the government about five years ago and am currently an attorney at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. I am married to my Baylor sweetheart, and we have three young boys. I am active in my local church and am enjoying serving as a Baylor Regent.
How has your BIC education influenced your life and/or work since leaving Baylor? Do you have any favorite memories from your time in BIC?
My favorite BIC memories are from my World Cultures classes, particularly the classes taught by Dr. Tom Hanks. I gained confidence in expressing my opinions and having those opinions challenged, which prepared me for law school and my legal career.
Do you have any advice for current BIC students?
My advice would to be embrace your BIC community. You are on this journey together and are forming lifelong relationships.
