A lifelong resident of the western suburbs, Kristen grew up in Hinsdale and currently lives in Burr Ridge. Her passion for working out has been a constant throughout her life. Having tried various types of fitness classes, none have resonated more than her love of barre classes. In 2010, she became an instructor at the Dailey Method in Lagrange, where she taught for 5 years. After leaving, Kristen focused on raising her 3 kids, Katrina, Sam and Schyler, with her husband, Jim. Now that the kids are older, she's decided it's time to put the mic back on and knew that Pure Barre was the right place for her! Kristen tried her first Pure Barre class in the fall of 2018 and has since been hooked. She loves the fast paced, challenging technique and the community of women she has come to call friends and can't wait to share her love of teaching at PBWB!
