Tristin discovered the stage at the early age of 5 as a dancer. She continued dancing through high school, studying at the Broadway Dance Center and the Martha Graham School of Contemporary Dance.

Tristin then went on to study at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts. She studied at the Stella Adler Studio of Acting, Stonestreet Studios Film and Screen Acting School, and spent a summer in Amsterdam with Kevin Kuhlke (Chair of Tisch Dept. of Drama) and some of the best teachers Europe has to offer. She graduated (with Honors) with a BFA in Drama, as well as a degree in Psychology.
Following graduation, Tristin left her home state of NY to pursue a career in Los Angeles. Since arriving in LA, she has studied at the Ron Burrus Studio, the Brad Henke Acting Studio, and Upright Citizens Brigade.
