Kristin’s nature has always been to embrace challenge and put herself to the test. It’s a trait she attributes to her upbringing. Kristin grew up in Philomont, VA where her first love was a horse. Her grandmother taught her to ride, train, and compete horses at a young age. However, it was always about more than just learning different riding techniques. These experiences became valuable life lessons for Kristin. Her grandmother taught her so much about how to make the most of every moment and how to drive toward opportunities.
