Kristen was inspired to go into medicine after spending 1.5 years volunteering at an orphanage in Honduras. Before becoming a physician, Kristen worked as a personal assistant for a disabled person, a business analyst for a consulting firm and an assistant in a biomedical engineering department. She was born in Illinois, but grew up in Virginia with her three siblings and large extended family. She is married with a young daughter. In her spare time, she enjoys traveling and visits as many national parks as she can.
