Kristen was a 4-year scholarship athlete in college, playing NCAA Women’s Basketball. She was a senior captain and was named the SAC Basketball Scholar Athlete of the Year in 2012. Kristen also played semi-pro basketball and signed a contract to play professionally overseas, but was injured before she was able to actually go play and made the decision to start law school instead of waiting until the next season to try to play overseas again. You can now find her on her daily runs through Baltimore City early in the morning most mornings. When she is not working or running, you will find Kristen spending time with her amazing husband, son, and two dogs.
