Kris was born and raised in Hilliard, Ohio and stayed in Hilliard to raise her two children, Adam and Nikki. When life presented an opportunity for her to move to California, she jumped at the chance. Kris lived in the Sierra Mountain Range in northern California for 20 years spending her time boating and camping in the beautiful natural alpine lakes. Some of her best times were spent white water rafting on the American River. Kris also enjoys hiking and all other outdoor activities.
In September 2020 she along with her cat, Zoe moved back to the Columbus area to be closer to her children and granddaughter, Cora. Kris joined the Northwest Vision Center family in November 2020 as the receptionist.
