Kristin is currently the senior copywriter for Tinder. Her responsibility for brand messaging cannot be taken lightly as she is speaking to billions of people, each with their own unique experience. She was one of the first black writers on staff at Bustle.com, one of the largest digital media platforms targeting millennial women writing culture & beauty content. Other published works can be found in the New York Times, Prevention.com, POP SUGAR, Elite Daily, and the Frisky. Passionate about inclusivity, and eager to fill a large gap with inclusive content, Kristin has found her niche writing marketing and editorial content for the world’s largest dating app.
Kristin has worked as a trauma advocate for over thirteen years; she began working as a hotline counselor in Boston for victims of sexual assault. She has volunteered with the NYPD in a city-wide training for SVU detectives to understand the importance of trauma-informed interviewing of survivors. Additionally, she has mentored young survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. Kristin believes that trauma causes a ripple effect in a community, and continues to use her means to heal, educate, and inform a society living in pain on the importance of inclusive, trauma-informed language. Currently, Kristin volunteers with adults as an ESL teacher, and has a new Podcast series coming out focusing on the unique stories of survivors from minority groups.
