Born and raised in the LA area, most of my childhood was spent in church, AWANA, and evangelical church camp. I went so far as to attend a Christian college, Azusa Pacific University, where I studied Political Science. After several non-profit jobs, a year volunteering in Peru, and multiple quarter-life crises, I currently live in Redondo Beach working as a nanny. I originally discovered Level Ground via Twitter and it brings me joy to be a part of this wonderful group of passionate people. I blog at www.kristipaula.com.
