Kristin grew up in Cedar Rapids and is excited to be reporting from her home city. She loves Eastern Iowa and knows how important it is to share the local stories here. Kristin graduated from the University of Nebraska Omaha in 2015 where she majored in both broadcasting & speech. While in college she competed in both cross country & track, specializing in the 10k. She still enjoys going on a nice run from time to time. You may see her jogging with a stroller as Kristin and her husband recently welcomed their first child. She is also a dog mom to a 4-year-old beagle named Riley girl. For fun she likes spending time outdoors whether it be biking, boating, caddying for her husband on the golf course or simply finding a patio to enjoy dinner on. She is obsessed with fashion and enjoys putting outfits together no matter the occasion. More than anything, she values time spent with family and friends. Be sure to say hi if you see her around and feel free to email her your story ideas at firstname.lastname@example.org.
