Hi I'm Kristi.

I love being outside with fresh air. I'm a college graduate and interested in traveling the world. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in central California. I love where I live because it's not too big of a city and it's no more than a few hours to get to any place like the moutains, ocean, or lake - all places I love. I absolutely LOVE being outside: swimming, hiking, camping, jogging, lying on some grassy patch, etc. When I am inside, I really enjoy watching movies and listening to music. I graduated from BYU in Exercise Science. I am applying to get my Master's in Occupational Therapy from wherever accepts me. I went on a study abroad to the BYU Jerusalem Center and I LOVED it so much. I was able to study the Bible and understand concepts I never would've imagined. I met the most amazing people during my experience in Israel and learned to love other cultures and faiths. I served a full-time 18-month mission in Rome, Italy. I love Italians and the culture and food and beautiful places I saw. I spent a summer in Australia as a nanny to a little baby girl. I got to travel around the country; I met some kangaroos and went skydiving while I was there. I want to continue traveling in my life, there's so much to do and see and appreciate. God is good. He loves me and all of us.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised by active members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and I was baptized when I was 8 years old. I remain active in this church because I believe it is true. This gospel makes me happy. I believe that Heavenly Father answers my prayers and loves me as his child, that Jesus Christ is my Savior and brother and best friend, and that the Holy Ghost comforts me. Truths like these are important to know, because they help me to know that I am important.

How I live my faith

My mission solidified my testimony. I have always believed that service is the way to open opportunities to introduce people to the church. I live my faith by trying to be a good friend to people like Christ was to everyone he met.
