Kristen is a life-long learner. Acquiring and sharing knowledge is her passion. She started her career in 1992, teaching 2nd grade at an “at-risk” school in Virginia. Upon moving to Georgia in 1998, she was hired as a 6th grade science teacher, going back to school to get her Master’s Degree in Science Education. After 15 years teaching science, she was ready for a new challenge. In 2012, Kristen earned her Specialist Degree and was hired as a middle school Media Specialist.

In her free time, Kristen enjoys singing at the top of her lungs, listening to audiobooks with her 14-year-old son, Max, and creating culinary delights for her family and friends.
