High school years
Haynie was born and raised in Mason, Michigan. In high school, she played on the varsity team since her freshman year, and graduated from Mason High School in 2001.
Haynie was the starting point guard for the Michigan State University Spartans all 4 years. She was instrumental in their 2005 Big Ten Championship & first ever trip to the FINAL 4. During Haynie's senior year, the Michigan State Women's Basketball Team had an excellent season, capturing 33 wins (including beating powerhouse programs like UConn, Tennessee & Notre Dame). Michigan State finally fell to Baylor University in the National Championship game. Kristin is frequently mentioned in the Michigan State Women's Basketball Record Book. One of her most impressive accomplishments was being the first & only (record was broken this year 2017) female to complete a triple double (points, assists and steals) in the NCAA tournament.

Haynie was drafted by the Sacramento Monarchs ninth overall in the 2005 WNBA draft. The Monarchs ended up winning the 2005 WNBA Championship in her rookie year. She is the only player to have played in the NCAA finals as well as the WNBA finals in the same year. On February 6, 2008, Haynie was selected by the Atlanta Dream in their expansion draft.
She also played for Paleo Faliro in Greece during the 2008-09 WNBA off-season.
She returned to the Sacramento Monarchs after being traded from the Detroit Shock halfway through the 2009 season, and remained until the team was disbanded at the end of that season. Haynie was selected by the Washington Mystics in the dispersal draft, but never played a game in a Mystics uniform, and has not signed with another WNBA team since, though she continued to play professionally in Europe.
After completion of the 2012 professional season in Italy, Haynie was named an assistant on the women's basketball coaching staff at Eastern Michigan University. After 2 seasons with the Eagles and developing a point guard of the year, Kristin went into personal training. She trained for two months before well-respected CMU Head Coach Sue Guevara offered her a position on her staff. Haynie helped lead Central Michigan to 2015 & 2016 MAC West Championships. In 2016 her point guard, Presley Hudson, was awarded Freshman of the Year. In 2017 CMU won the regular season conference outright, with the point guard earning 1st Team all MAC honors.
