Kristin is a lover of cats, coffee shops and all things culinary, in no particular order. In fact, she dreams of owning a cat-friendly caffeine hut one day which she plans to call Whiskers & Java… look out for it. As for now, Kristin spends her days as a Class Assistant at The Chopping Block, a position that has her constantly learning more about the culinary world and the snazzy stuff in it. Having performed her undergrad at the University of Illinois with a degree in Molecular Biology, Kristin plans to attend graduate school next fall to receive her Masters and PhD in Human Nutrition. With the arsenal of delicious recipes learned from TCB, she enjoys recreating vegetarian versions of the dishes at home, a task her roommates seem to enjoy. Kristin is thrilled with the opportunity to blog about quirky health things and hopes you enjoy reading!
