Kristen loves telling stories that people will still be talking about the next day. She believes that the power of a good story can make a difference in our lives and looks forward to sharing that with the audience.
One of her most memorable moments of her career was covering Iowa’s first in the nation caucus in 2008 and 2012, interviewing more than a dozen presidential candidates over the years. Kristen will never forget the unforgettable and unique opportunity to meet the candidates in person and conduct sit-down interviews with them about the issues that were important to voters.
