I don’t have my strengths quest, but I’m a 4 on the enneagram hahaha.

KRISTEN’S STRENGTHS, IN HER OWN WORDS.

“I think I’m really adaptable. I went to England for a semester and I learned that I can challenge myself. Every day was difficult to be on my own, but I learned how to make good decisions. I learned how to adapt, which is a strength that applies to everything I do now.”

WHAT TOOLS COULD YOU NOT WORK WITHOUT?

“I couldn’t work without Spotify, I couldn’t do life without music. Illustrator and pens.”

WHAT’S IN YOUR BAG?

The people I work with. It’s a very creative environment. I like that I get to work on different projects and use different skills and sides of my personality.”

GOALS FOR THE FUTURE

“I want to create work that I appreciate and value. I’ve always wanted to open up my own advertising firm, but I think my biggest thing is just making sure I am proud of what I create and do. And also travel a lot. Like a lot. Yeah hahaha.”
