What started out as discontent for where she lived turned into a surprise “happily ever after” story that continues to shape the way she lives every day, with purpose and intentionality. She’s seen an experiment in gratitude grow into a movement of encouraging others to appreciate their surroundings and take notice of all that Tucson has to offer. While she has the great honor of getting to work on various projects in her city and community, her main focus is raising two beautiful humans, Calvin and Olivia. Her husband Alex is the most patient, loving, and kind guy in the world that happens to look exactly like her.
As a native of Tucson, Alex never felt compelled to leave his hometown. However, it wasn’t until his wife Kristin began her journey of learning to love where she lives, that he truly started to understand the importance of appreciating his surroundings. He enjoys exploring the places that make cities unique, and has a special love for urban spaces that bring people together. Alex is often found walking around downtown with his wife and kids, looking for new things to love about Tucson. He hopes to inspire others to engage with what's happening in their local communities.
