Kristen grew up in Georgia, where she pursued a career in the State of Georgia Law Enforcement. And within eight years, her disease had impacted her career. When she moved to Dallas to get sober, she was introduced to The Magdalen House by her wife, Kaki, who volunteered as a meeting chair every Monday at 2:30.

In addition to bringing her own experience in recovery, Kristen previously worked at Windhaven Recovery as a House Manager and Recovery Advocate. When she sees hope in the eyes of women who desire to get better, it drives her passion for her work at The Magdalen House. Being able to share her own experience, strength, and hope with the women aids in grounding her own recovery. She is beyond grateful for the opportunity to work and serve with such a wonderful group of women.
