Kristin was born and raised in Youngstown, Ohio, where she earned her bachelor's degree in elementary education. She moved to Las Vegas to teach and earned her first master's degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. After 11 years, she and her family made their way to Nashville in 2014 where she completed her second masters degree in mathematics curriculum and instruction. Kristin is currently a middle school math teacher here in Nashville.
After becoming a mom, Kristin began to struggle with her weight so she started running. After a couple of years of minimal progress, an ankle surgery further sidelined Kristin. No longer able to run, she put on even more weight than before. Frustrated and not knowing where to turn, Kristin joined a friend in the weight room at a local gym and began strength training. After educating herself more on nutrition, she was losing weight faster and become stronger than ever before.
A teacher by nature, Kristin has found a passion in helping others who are like she once was. Watching people discover their strength and the excitement of doing something they never thought they could do is what drives her passion. Kristin is a certified personal trainer and also holds certifications in nutrition and strength and conditioning.
