Kristen grew up in Charlotte, North Carolina, where she fell in love with performing at a young age. She started out in theater playing a wide range of roles, one of her favorites being Dorothy in “The Wizard of Oz.” She attended a high school in Charlotte, which focused on the arts, where she was given the tools and confidence to begin pursuing a career in acting professionally. She moved to New York upon graduating from high school to attend the New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts, a two year acting intensive for film and television. She stayed in New York for another year after school working in several productions including her first commercial and a web series. After moving from NY she wrote and starred in in her first short film, which premiered at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival.
Kristen is no stranger to adventure, having scuba dived in the Great Barrier Reef, hiked on cliffs in Ireland and explored non-commercial caves in Tennessee. However, her biggest adventure yet has been when she moved to Los Angeles. In the time she has been here, she has been in several web series, commercials, a short film, and most recently can be seen dancing next to Taylor Swift in her music video “Shake It Off”. She has also been taking improv classes at The Groundlings Theater.
Aside from music and acting, Kristen likes jumping up and down and dancing in the rain, checking her Facebook everyday, hanging with friends and going on adventures, watching TV and going to the movies, shopping and drinking strawberry banana smoothies and singing at the top of her lungs.
