From an early age Kristen was involved in many genres of dance including Jazz Ballet, Classical Ballet, Tap, Belly Dancing, Line Dancing, Gymnastics, Ballroom Dancing, singing and musical instruments. With a passion for connecting with children, Kristens’ wild imagination led her to publish her first children’s book in 2016.
