Kiersten was born in Denver, and is a Colorado native through and through. Although, due to her family’s military background she’s had the opportunity to call many places across America, “home.” However, for the past fifteen years, the Springs has had her heart. She’s completed the majority of her education here, and most recently has graduated from the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs, in 2019 with a bachelor’s degree in both psychology and criminal justice (and a minor in visual art too!). Currently, Kiersten is back at UCCS, pursuing her dream of becoming an elementary school art teacher. In regard to her creative background, she’s been making art since she was a child, and has had the honor of participating in many fantastic art programs, placing in competative shows here and there, and most recently has displayed her work in local eateries and galleries here in town. When she’s not learning, teaching, creating, or working, you can catch her kicking’ it wither her loved ones (especially her cat), roller skating, soaking up the sun outside, or cooking up her favorite breakfast item… omelets!
