Kristen is the proud owner of Pure Barre Sacramento - Roseville, Pavilions, El Dorado Hills, Ice Blocks, and Elk Grove! She was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio and discovered Pure Barre in Columbus, shortly after leaving her career in public accounting to stay home with her two little boys. A health and fitness enthusiast, she was instantly hooked and knew Pure Barre would change her life. She became a teacher in 2012; later, a lead teacher and manager of three Central Ohio studios. In 2015, she convinced her husband, Alex, to make her dream of business ownership become reality. In 2016, they sold their house, packed up their boys, and drove 2,356 miles to open their first studio in Roseville, CA. Since 2012, Kristen has taught over 3,000 classes, yet each and every one continues to fuel her passion for Pure Barre. She is grateful for the opportunity to share her love of music and movement with five incredible communities and one amazing team. When she’s not in the studios, she loves to spend time with her family hiking, camping, traveling, and trying new things!
