Kristen grew up in Lake Tahoe, surrounded by the Sierra Nevada mountains. This gave her an early understanding of, and appreciation for, healthful living and an active lifestyle. She moved to Omaha to attend Creighton University, where she graduated Cum Laude with a B.S. in Biology in 2003. She and her husband moved first to Utah, and then Charleston, South Carolina, before returning to Nebraska to raise their family. Kristen is a devoted mother to her two lovely and energetic children. In 2012, Kristen completed her Balanced Body University training for the Pilates Reformer. She has dedicated herself to empowering women through fitness and a healthy diet to improve strength, achieve fitness goals, and, her favorite, increase self-confidence. To that end, Kristen was introduced to Pure Barre while looking for ways to help her clients take their fitness goals to the next level. She was hooked on the Pure Barre technique from her very first class, and she knew she had to bring this fun and efficient workout to Omaha to share with her community. She can’t wait to “lift. tone. burn.” with you - see you at the barre!
