Kristen joined stroller strides in the summer of 2015 when her daughter Samantha was 6 months old, and immediately felt at home. Originally from Michigan, she and her husband relocated to Chicago over 10 years ago, and then to the North Shore in 2013. Kristen and Samantha love being a part of this great community and have made many friends along the way. She decided to get more involved and became an instructor in 2016. Kristen is excited to grow the community and help others in the same way stroller strides helped her!
