Biography

My name is Kristen Thurmond. Originally from Nixa, Missouri, I came to Kansas City for my education and fell in love with the city. I decided to make Kansas City my home.

One of my passions is helping families keep their pets safe, healthy, and out of legal trouble. I am also a certified Guardian ad Litem (GAL) and represent children in juvenile and circuit court cases. During my free time, I play in recreational sports leagues, volunteer at Spay and Neuter Kansas City, and try new restaurants in the KC area.
