About Kristin

Kristin Hargrove is a San Diego native. But she also loves to travel and have new experiences...

I've spent time working in Australia, Japan, and London, and have visited such places as Cuba, Iceland, China, Brazil, Thailand, New Zealand, and Russia. But I always love coming home to San Diego!
