Kristen grew up in a small town in the mountains of western North Carolina. She earned her BA in Human Services from Elon University, where she became involved with Greek InterVarsity. Kristen started a Bible study in her sorority, Alpha Omicron Pi, and also helped to plant a Greek IV chapter on campus. After graduating, Kristen moved to Lafayette, Indiana, where she worked for four years at Purdue University as a Greek IV campus staff. Her next adventure brought her to Indianapolis where she transitioned into an administrative role with Greek IV. After six years in Indiana, her heart was called back to North Carolina in 2011. She now serves as the National Administrator for Greek IV. In her spare time, Kristen and her husband, Michael enjoy being outdoors, going on bike rides or hiking and spending time with her family.
