hello, readers

I’m Kristen

I am a writer and journalist based in Washington, D.C.

I have experience in writing, editing, photography, and social media content and design. In my spare time, I enjoy traveling and hiking so that I can take new pictures and find new stories along the way.

In summer 2020, I graduated from American University’s School of Communication where I earned an MA in Investigative Journalism and Public Affairs. While there, I covered Congress, SCOTUS, local events, arts and culture, race and women’s health.

I am a native of North Carolina so, naturally, I love sweet tea, the beach, and Krispy Kreme donuts.

I am also a proud cat mom of Gus and Autumn, and now a very suspicious hamster named Pikachu.
