We are all creatives; it is a unique gift that makes us human. While Kristin enjoys creating her own works of art in the performance and fine arts realm, she is passionate about to helping others reach their own creative potential and experience the arts for themselves. She has been a dance professional for over 13 years, performing across the south and mid-west along with teaching in Lexington and Columbia at the Center for Dance Education, then directing and developing a dance program for the YMCA of Greenville’s 3 locations in the Upstate of South Carolina. Kristin specializes in ballet, contemporary, jazz, modern and tap techniques. In addition to dance, she has also been working in the area of fine craft for the last 6 years. She opened a studio in 2015 in Travelers Rest South Carolina, the TR Makers Co, where students of all ages can be inspired by and also learn the techniques of various fine crafts. She specializes in sewing, block carving and printmaking, pattern making, set and costume design.

Kristin was a teaching artist for my fifth grade gifted students. Due to COVID restrictions, we had to make it work virtually. She was so creative and energetic. She planned and taught a unit on the Harlem Renaissance Era. Learning about the era, they choreographed movement for each time period.
