Kristin

Spalon Montage Location and Stylist: Edina - Brittany

Years as a MVC: 2 and 1st year Team Captain

Hometown: Plymouth, MN

Education: Bachelor degrees in Marketing and Finance

Occupation: Sales Analyst

First Job: My first job was serving ice cream at Coldstone, and yes, we even sang for tips!

Dance background: My dance background started with 5 years competitive dance team in high school, 3 years on a National Championship competitive team in college, and two seasons on the Swarm Performance Team, before becoming an MVC!

Favorite type of music: My favorite type of music is anything that you can dance to, such as Bruno Mars or Beyonce - anything with a little funk to it.

Favorite phone app: My favorite phone app is my calendar - I couldn't live without it! Another favorite app is Instagram, because I like seeing how creative other people can be!

Celebrity crush: My celebrity crush is Justin Timberlake. Watching him on Saturday Night Live, I can tell he is very funny and talented!

Junk Food weakness: I can't pass up any snacks or baked goods with Reese's in them! The chocolate and peanut butter combination is the best!

I've always wanted to: I have always wanted to run a half marathon, or a marathon. Although I can hardly find the time to train!

One place I would love to travel to: One place I would love to travel would be Italy or Greece. I would love to go to the coast and explore all the delicious food and picturesque sights!

Off the field, I spend my free time: I spend my free time with friends out at new brunch or dinner spots, with my family playing with nieces and nephews, or biking the trails with my husband. Anything where I am out and about in Minnesota is just perfect for me.

Best beauty secret: My new favorite beauty trick is a homemade facial, which is a mixture of honey, cinnamon and nutmeg! Not to mention is smells good too!

Favorite thing to do in Mpls: It's really hard to choose one favorite thing to do in MN, but I think biking along the Mississippi River or around Lake Harriet would definitely be my top choice!

Favorite restaurant in Mpls: I have too many favorite restaurants to choose just one! I would have to pick Amore Victoria in uptown for the atmosphere, location, and the delicious menu!

My hidden talent is: I'm not very proud of this hidden "talent," but I am able to sleep anywhere, anytime.

One thing I wish I was great at: I wish I was great at golf! Then I could play more with my co-workers, family, and best of all, spend more time outside.

Dream job: My dream job would include event planning, helping others and getting involved in the community. So whatever job that is, I would love to apply!

Greatest achievement: I think my greatest achievement would be getting married and having a successful job out of college to be able to live a comfortable lifestyle. It is a huge accomplishment to be able to be happy and content with your life!

Best thing about being an MVC: The best thing about being an MVC is that you have an entire support system behind you at all times, and a great outlet to achieve fitness goals, leadership goals, and to work on a team. Not to mention cheering for the Vikings all year round with your closest friends!
