Kirsten graduated from Auburn University in 2006 with a BFA in Theatre Performance and then studied at the Circle in The Square Summer Conservatory in New York. Kirsten has served as an educator, actor, activist, arts administrator, comedian, writer, host and improviser for the past decade while making metro Atlanta her home. Amongst her notable achievements, she conceived a multi-tiered program as the first Youth Programs Director at a non-profit in the Old 4th Ward where she created, managed, and taught both the summer camp program and the year-round youth and teen training ensembles. She strives to not only bring a piece of herself to every stage, set, and learning space, but also makes it a point to not only teach the student, but to educate the person that student will become. Some of the places where Kirsten has worked are Alliance Theatre Education Department, Georgia Shakespeare, Actor’s Express, Dark Side Of The Room, The Center for Civic Innovation, Kate’s Club, The Center for Puppetry Arts, The Austin Improvised Play Festival, The Home Depot, Hartmann Studios, Rapid Fire Theatre, The Ocean State Improv Festival, Momentum Arts, Atlanta Public Schools, The Stumptown Improv Festival, Atlanta Black Excellence Photo Series and The Moth Atlanta.
