Kristen joined the KBOI team in November 2017. She grew up in Sandpoint, Idaho and received 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 yoga, photography and blogging. Her favorite part about Boise is the growing community enables her to discover local artists or try new food. When she has the opportunity to be home in north Idaho, she likes to ride her horses and help her parents on their lavender farm.
