Born and raised in New Jersey, Kristen earned her B.A. in Journalism & Media Studies from Rutgers University in 2010. Kristen spent the beginning of her career in the entertainment industry, working as an editor and freelancer for J-14 Magazine, Popstar! Magazine, and Teen.com. During a short gap in her career, Kristen took up residence in Windsor, England–alongside her husband, Sal–who was working internationally in London. Prior to joining the BluePrints team in 2022, Kristen spent time managing all aspects of digital marketing for a local youth-focused organization, developing paid and organic social media, working on email campaigns, and managing website design and maintenance.
Living at the Jersey Shore with her husband and their German Shepherd rescue dog named Windsor (sentimentally named after their time in the Royal Borough), Kristen can often be found grabbing an iced coffee and hanging out at the beach year-round.
