Patrice: How did your journey in business began?
Khristen: My business journey began with my passion for Fitness and Health! I’ve always been super geeked about science, the human body, plants, animals, and nature in itself. It’s like it comes natural to me. That is how I know I am deeply rooted and connected. My love for fitness is tied to my love for health and nature. You just can’t have one without the other and so I made it a business.
Patrice: What started your passion to become a fitness model?
Khristen: Honestly, Modeling in general is like second nature to me. Since I am deep into health and fitness, I decided that becoming a fitness model would be just a hobby for me. I absolutely love it and it’s simply just another part of me that makes sets me apart from my peers and others who are stuck in this matrix.
Patrice: As a business owner, what challenges did you face along the way?
Khristen: As a business owner, I’ve faced challenges such as time management and not having the proper resources to run my business. With being in the military full time and having multiple businesses on the outside time is little when not managed correctly. I’ve struggled with it but things are definitely getting better with the help of friends, resources such as planners, and a little self care in between. I’m grateful for the struggles though. It has only made me stinger and wiser!
