Kristen has been with the MAD Christian Radio Show since day one. Growing up she loved listening to Christian bands like DC Talk and Audio Adrenaline, but was surprised at how many of her friends and classmates were not aware of the kind of Christian music that was out there. While hoping that someone would step up and start a show with Christian music for the youth, God started to make it obvious that person was supposed to be her. It didn’t make a lot of sense because Kristen had no radio experience and up until that point wasn’t the most comfortable public speaker, but as she was about to find out, God’s plans rarely rely on human wisdom (1 Corinthians 1:26-29).
The Making A Difference (MAD) Christian Radio Show hit the airwaves for the first time in November of 2001 and after more than 16 years of hosting and producing the show, Kristen still loves ever minute of it!
Kristen calls Timmins, Ontario home. In her free time Kristen loves to spend time with her four adorable nephews and niece, go fishing with friends, travel, play sports and spend time in the great outdoors.
