A gypsy by nature, Kris grew up in western New York and wandered south in her college years. Since then, she has lived in various cities throughout Kentucky and Ohio - getting married, raising a family, and working as a professor, designer, and sustainable building and green living consultant. Kris has an AA in Art, a BA in Interior Design and an MS in Architecture. She's been practicing commercial interior design since 1996 in the Northern KY / Cincinnati area, and has been a professor and administrator since 2001.
She and her husband have built an award-winning passive solar, sustainable home which has also been featured nationally in Environmental Design and Construction Magazine and the ASID NewsFlash newsletter, and locally in Cincinnati Magazine, Cincinnati/NKY Home Improvement Magazine, and the Green Energy Ohio newsletter. The home has a solar hot water heater, and a rainwater catchment system. It also produces its own electricity with a roof-mounted solar PV system.
Her hobbies include RV-ing, reading, writing, travel, supporting her children in their 3-sport-each insanity, and motorcycle riding. Along with her husband and two children, she has spent summers road-tripping across the USA in their RV - traveling from Maine to Florida, North Carolina to California, and everywhere in between. Her goal is to take her children to all 50 states before they graduate high school. You're invited to follow their adventures on her website where she reminds readers to "live well, dream green, and be a traveler, not a tourist!"
