Kristen has been recognized nationally, regionally, and locally for her creative work and social advocacy in various areas ranging from photography, videography, writing, and entrepreneurship. She has worked for and with Fortune 500s, government organizations, small businesses, and universities, developing their brands, creating brand narratives, and implementing brand awareness strategies with approaches such as SEO, graphic design, video, animation, and social media.
Kristen’s work has been featured on television, in magazines, on websites, like BuzzFeed, and published in both print and digital publications. Her desire to continue learning new skills has led to Kristen becoming a Jane-of-all-trades. Her passion, perseverance, and can-do attitude has enabled her to be successful both professionally and personally. She’s never backed down from a challenge, and this approach has led to her independently produced video work receiving recognition at a global level in Los Angeles. She’s the winner of Scholastic publishing house’s 2013 Push Novel Writing Contest.
As an entrepreneurial spirit, she had the unique opportunity to compete in a collegiate level entrepreneurship program similar to Shark Tank, and was the only contestant to receive funding from all of the judges for her product. Currently, Kristen is developing her patent-pending product.
When she’s not developing creative strategies, Kristen is likely found expressing her creativity through other avenues such as portrait photography, crafting, or writing her latest novel. On the rare occasion she isn’t being creative, you’ll find her at the local dog park with her dog, Rosie, or telling “punny” jokes.
