Kristin’s love of travel began in college and carried on through the years. After marrying and “settling down” a bit, travel was even more important in her life – a way of escape, of appreciating our beautiful planet, and gaining perspective along the way.
Graduating with a degree in Art + Design (North Carolina State University, 2006), Kristin has always loved beautiful colors and unique patterns. She believes art – in any form – should inspire the mind and bring joy to the soul. Though art is subjective, it is hard work and creative ability that shine brightest.
After a month-long (and life changing) trip to Guatemala, she and her husband began importing fair trade, artisan accessories to support women in poverty. This passion has now grown into something even bigger: Vacation Crate! A product-junkie at heart, this box combines many of Kristin’s favorite things: bold accessories, bright colors, delicious scents, and beauty products to give you the perfect glow.
In addition to being a wife, mom of two, and co-founder of Hopebox, Kristin’s passion is to bring paradise to your doorstep every month, to help raise women out of poverty, and to leave the world a better place than she found it.
