Kristen’s passion for her work stems from suffering a number of injuries herself. She ran competitively in high school and college with plans of continuing to improve her running times after college. However, injury after injury kept her from reaching her goals. It wasn’t until she started incorporating a comprehensive approach to running that she found herself able to run without constantly being injured. She finds great joy in being able to teach others how to do the same.

Kristen has had the opportunity to live in many different parts of the country and currently resides in North Dakota. She graduated from Northern Michigan University with a degree in Exercise Science and Spanish, completed her Doctorate of Physical Therapy at Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions, and is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS).
