Hi, I’m Kirsten. A Midwest girl living in the Pacific Northwest with my husband and our two dogs. I’ve been passionate about sport and fitness since I was a little girl. I started out as a gymnast but quickly explored other avenues such as soccer, volleyball, basketball, tennis and diving to name a few. I was also an avid rollerblader and tree climber. Flash forward several years later and I still like to find adventure in fitness. If I’m not running destination races across North America, you’ll find me hopping from studio to studio around town and during my travels. I used to be about the hustle lifestyle but recently uncovered some adrenal/thyroid issues that have opened my mind to a more balanced movement approach and holistic health.
These days, my wellness journey focuses more on nutrition, mindful movement, stress management, self-care and loads of nature. I’ve always had a knack for venturing off the beaten path during my travels but now that I live in the PNW, there is so much to see and do just outside my doorstep. After experiencing this type of lifestyle, I don’t know that I could ever go back. I just need my toes in the dirt and the breeze in my hair. When I’m not in the studio or running, you’ll most likely find me out on the trail taking in all the sights. It’s my zen.
Before blogging, I was the Sr. Digital Strategist for a large restaurant chain in Kansas City. Since leaving my stomping grounds, I’ve followed my passion and pursued a career in content creation and photography. As a journalism major, it just feels like such a natural path for me to explore. My overall goal is really to encourage women to find their own individualized routine that fits their lifestyle and makes them feel empowered to live their best life. Bonuses for me would be 1) inspiring people to make healthier choices, 2) get them to try something new and 3) body positivity – help woman find the confidence to love the skin they’re in.
