She also worked for over 15 years as a certified art and music instructor in North Carolina.

Kristen helped her school become a national Title I school, P21 Exemplar School, a finalist award in the Intel Schools of Distinction Math and Science Award and win the National School Change Award. She has been recognized as a Yale Distinguished Music Educator and both Kristen and her fifth-grade students were invited by the President’s Committee on the Arts and Humanities to showcase an economics and game design project at the first annual White House Arts Integration Fair.
