Kristin Teigen

Kristin Teigen left Oregon almost two decades ago to be a political activist in San Francisco and Washington DC, and worked for, among others, CISPES, the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force and the National Organization for Women. She returned with the hubby more than a decade ago, both ready for a garden, a family and a bit of fresh air. She worked in Oregon for few noble causes before returning to graduate school to pound out degrees in History and Education. Now, she’s a consultant, but really, her main job is taking care of two adorable boys and spending way too much time at PTSA meetings.
