She is the new Oneota Film Festival student intern! Kristen is originally from Austin, MN and in her second year at Luther College. As a Music and Communication Studies Major, she keeps plenty busy with activities on and off campus. She is a violinist first-and-foremost and plays in the Luther College Symphony Orchestra, as well as sings in the Cathedral Choir.
When she isn’t practicing or rehearsing or studying, Kristen fills her time up with being a Resident Assistant, working in the Luther Admissions Office, doing community service with the volunteer organization Alpha Phi Omega, and watching Grey’s Anatomy. She loves things like the color blue, old movies, To Kill a Mockingbird, socializing with friends, tea, and adventuring in the Boundary Waters. A favorite thing from college so far has been the opportunity to travel abroad to Greece and London in Spring 2015, but she will always be content with spending summers at her family’s lake cabin on Big Pine Lake in Perham, MN.
Kristen's future plans include a career in arts’ and music communication, higher education, or law school. She is excited to be an intern at OFF to learn more things about the field of communication, to get to watch exciting documentaries, and interact with film lovers in Decorah and beyond!
