Kristen is a graduate of Adelphi University on Long Island, New York where she double majored in Political Science and Journalism. On her extremely liberal campus, she was often referred to as "conservative Kristen" or simply "that girl who likes Sarah Palin." Kristen first became involved with conservative politics at a very young age-- she has worked for numerous campaigns and interned in the New York State Assembly. She also spent a semester studying in Washington D.C. while working on Capitol Hill. Kristen's passion for politics has most recently been fueled by the emergence of the Mama Grizzlies on the national stage. She looks up to politicians like Governor Nikki Haley, Congresswoman Kristi Noem and Senator Kelly Ayotte. Kristen proudly (and loudly) calls herself a conservative feminist and hopes to inspire others by being a voice for conservative women and speaking out against unfair media attacks. Kristen plans to continue her education by eventually earning her PhD in American Government.
