With guitar in arms, Kristin brought her upbeat musical stage presence to nationwide events for the ERA and women's rights, safe energy, peace, racial equality, and other pressing causes. Kristin sings for conferences, tributes and rites of passage, at libraries, school assemblies, preschools, and as part of her work as an ESL teacher and teacher trainer. She enjoys taking part in a wide variety of musical activities, but most of all, Kristin enjoys singing for those striving to build a better world."
