Currently she's taking a short break to be home with Asher her 4 week old and Kyler who is just 2. Kristen and her husband Frank, have been married for 8 years. But they have known each other for far longer. They even graduated from Riverside Brookfield High School. Kristen loves being in Brookfield and takes full advantage of being close to the woods and trails in the area. Kristen focuses as much as possible on organic eating and visits the Brookfield farmers market for her weekly shopping when in season to support local farming. She's also able to get eggs from Swingbelly farms all year long.
