Kristin enjoys writing about the health of humans and their feathered friends too. One of her first (and most successful) passion projects was building a website centered around parrot care and conservation.
She is fascinated with world languages—how they evolve, how they are connected, and how they influence perception. In her free time, she enjoys learning new languages and improving those she speaks.
Kristin received a Bachelor of Arts in English and a Minor in Psychology from The University of Cincinnati.
