Kristin is a Virgo, but that’s not all! She’s also a creative strategist, poet, native Californian, proud Chicanx, and a fierce advocate for compassion and collectivism who brings her whole, glorious, messy self to every aspect of her work.
She’s led award-winning national advocacy and engagement campaigns for Planned Parenthood and Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, developed brand and communication strategies for Chicago Freedom School, Plant Chicago, Farmer’s Fridge and FLOR, and crafted hundreds (thousands?!) of pages of web copy for mission-driven organizations and transformational leaders across industries.
She’s spoken at AIGA Chicago, Ladies Get Paid, Institute of Design, Hopscotch Design Festival and Brand New’s First Round Conference, published work in numerous poetry journals, and was once nominated for a Pushcart Prize for a poem about vengeance (it didn’t win). She is the author of one chapbook and a friend to all plants.
Kristin holds an AB in English from Princeton and an MA in Humanities and Creative Writing from the University of Chicago.
