Kristen joined the KBOI team in November 2017. She grew up in Sandpoint, Idaho and obtained a communications degree from North Idaho College in Coeur d'Alene. When in Coeur d'Alene she worked for a local newspaper as a photojournalist covering local news. Not long after, Boise was calling her name and she continued her education at Boise State University and is currently majoring in journalism, and minoring in political communication. When she first moved to Boise, you could find her on the blue field at the Albertson's Stadium photographing football games or on campus photographing student life for Boise State.
When Kristen isn't following stories in the news, she loves practicing photography and blogging. Her favorite part about Boise is that the growing community enables her to discover local artists in the music scene or try new food around the Treasure Valley. When she has the opportunity to be home in North Idaho, she likes to ride her horses.
