My name is Kristina and I am a first-year here at Elon. I was born and raised in sunny, San Diego. I went to a STEM high school, Sage Creek. There, I fell in love with biomedical sciences and andy type of math. I am a very athletic person so I participated in a few varsity sports- Track and Field in which I did pole vaulting, volleyball, and dance. Outside of school, I spent the majority of my time riding horses and preparing for competitions. I had a good group of friends in school but I definitely have my best friends in the horse world. Shannon Mctaggart who I've grown up with and introduced to horses; now I ride and compete with her. Also, a few others that I've come to know very well, Haley Berget, Baily Blackburn, and Kaeley Arterburn. When I'm not at Elon, I live at home with my mom and dad and my dog, Jack. So far, I have had a very involved and diverse life, introducing me to very important people into my life and being able to show passion for a variety of things.
