Meet the Fam: Krista

Hello! I’m Krista. I’m a 33-year-old mother of five, and writing about myself is really difficult.

I met my husband, Jason, when we were seniors in high school. However, we didn’t really even become friends until we were freshmen in college, and we started dating the following summer. We got married after dating for only seven months – the weekend before my brother was deployed to Iraq.

I have a Bachelor of Arts in English, which I don’t really make use of. Originally, I wanted to be a teacher and a writer. But just a semester before my degree was finished, I discovered that I wanted to be a nurse. Unfortunately, I was already super pregnant with our third child. I obviously finished my English degree, and I did go back to school for my nursing prerequisites after taking one semester off. By that point, I was already pregnant with our fourth child, and, about the time I would have started nursing school, we found out we were having our fifth. For the last five years, I was a patient care technician at a local hospital.

I like reading, writing, photography, and crocheting. Last summer, I started cycling for fitness. 

As I said, writing about myself is hard, so I will probably end this here. You will figure me out over time, anyway.
