Kristen enrolled at PDA in 2018 and was immediately hooked. Her style is playful and engaging. You can always catch Kristen dancing with a smile on her face. Kristen's strength is her consistency, which shows as she has hardly missed a week of pole since her first class. Although she started pole without prior dancing experience, her enthusiasm resulted in her quickly developing her skills. Kristen began teaching in 2020 and is proud to share pole with others as an instructor. Pole allows Kristen to balance her technical and creative sides, helps her to switch off from her job as an environmental scientist, and get her body moving. Pole has also helped her develop a more positive body image and is integral for her mental health and wellbeing. When she is not in the studio, Kristen enjoys hiking and going to the beach if the sun is out. She is a true a homebody at heart and more often than not, you'll find her somewhere quiet with a cup of tea and her nose in a book.
