Originally from the Pittsburgh area, Kristen relocated to Erie at a young age and has been happy to call it home ever since. She learned a great appreciation for animals from her parents, through wildlife education, conservation, and rehabilitation. While she adores all types of creatures, Kristen has a particular soft spot for dogs! This led to a rewarding career in grooming, where she has the privilege of making pets look and feel amazing. In her downtime, Kristen loves to get outside and explore the beauty that Erie has to offer with her husband Chris and Boxer Boscoe.
