A Personal Level

Kristen was born on Clark Air Force Base in the Philippines in 1973. She spent most of her life as an Air Force Brat, living throughout the United States and abroad. She enjoys traveling and experiencing many different cultures. Her parents grew up in San Diego and her large extended family has lived there all their lives, so when it was time to spread her wings and venture out on her own, she chose to live in beautiful San Diego.

She enjoys all things creative, reading, writing, music, photography and making lampwork beads.
