Veteran.  Jeopardy Question.  girl mom.

My Story

A veteran, a volunteer, a triathlete. Just a few words that describe Kristen King Holmes.

During her 10 years of service in the Army Reserve, Kristen deployed to Iraq twice. She’s stared down Saddam Hussein, entertained troops on her radio show in the Middle East, told her story on national television, hosted a reality show, earned an Emmy and appeared as the answer to a Jeopardy question.  Now, she’s working on her memoir.

Life today isn’t as dangerous as it once was, but for the mom of two girls, two dogs and a husband – it’s just as chaotic.  This new era brings its own set of challenges as she tries to juggle it all and stay off the struggle bus.

Kristen is one of the rare workers who have a “can-do” attitude about anything you throw her way. She always gave 110% every single day, and she was someone we all knew we could count on. I wish there were more journalists like her!
