Kristine has always enjoyed hiking and being outdoors. She also enjoys the company of a good book whenever time allows. She loves spending time with her family and friends whenever this crazy life and schedule allows them to be together.
Currently Kristine is working as a Caregiver for her wife. Candace has many different types of autoimmune diseases that are life-threatening. Kristine had to quit her conventional 40 Hour a week job to stay home and take care of her.
Kristine’s love of writing started as a child. Over the years, she wasn’t practicing it as much, but managed to be able to hold onto her skills. Kristine started using her writing again as an outlet to tell people about her care giving experiences and to have an outlet to be able to turn to others for support. It has now transformed into something that she is doing for work enjoys very much. Kristine looks forward to increasing her writing experience even more, and can’t wait to see where her writing journey brings her next!
