My name is Kristen (AKA “KConn”).

I’ve been nicknamed “KConn” without instruction through all stages of my life.

I was born and raised in New York by a family of fervent travelers, and I’m now on my own wanderlust mission.  I work best outside my comfort zone, and embrace all new experiences, places, and people with a full heart. In this chapter of my life, I am living and working in Seattle to explore the mountains and live in harmony with nature. This blog is a canvas for my heart, as I share the things I’ve learned on my life journey.  I believe there is never enough to see or do, and I hope my insatiable appetite for the unknown is infectious! My interests include:


I aim to make an impact through mindful, worldly service, and continually expand my horizons to better serve others. I believe in being true to ourselves, and I promise to be effortlessly me.

Come along for the journey, it’s going to be a wild ride…


With love and gratitude, thank you for joining me on this journey!
