Kristen is the newest addition to In The Bag! Not only is she trying to learn a new job BUT a new city!!

Kristen grew up in Plains which is a small, rural town in the southwest corner of the state. In 2006, she relocated to Pittsburg, KS, to attend Pittsburg State University. While in college, she did travel to Italy with a group of PSU students! She says that was one of the best cultural experiences she has had to date!

After bouncing around a few majors she finally decided to double major in Marketing & Management. She received her BBA in May of 2010!  After spending 6 years on the southeast side of the state, she now calls Wichita her new home! She says a few of her favorite eateries that she has been to so far are: Mead’s Corner, Tanya’s Soup Kitchen and Abuelos!!

She quoted, “I enjoy being in the center of the state now because I can go away for a weekend and visit different friends and family.  It no longer takes me 6 hours to visit my parents!”

During her spare time away from the office she enjoys reading, cooking, shopping, DIY projects and spending time with the people that are most important in her life! She is an avid country music fan, especially red dirt.  She enjoys going to outdoor concerts in the summer! Her favorites are Wade Bowen, Randy Rogers Band, Josh Abbott Band and the well-known Miranda Lambert.

She also enjoys the outdoors and says she likes relaxing with friends and family at the lake or spending alone time and going for a run! She has ran in 5K’s and plans on running her first 1/2 marathon in December.

The first day of fall sometimes lands on her birthday which is September 22nd! It is also her favorite season!! She has one furry friend, a cat that goes by Eli or Mr.Kitty!
