Kristen McChristian Bio

DSC_0223Kristen has lived in Burney for 10 years, and she is a participant at Circle of Friends, the drop-in center for local people with mental health challenges. She’s the mother of four kids, one of which she gave up for adoption, and she formerly worked as a Pre-K teacher in Redondo Beach. 

Between the ages of 2 and 12, Kristen suffered horrific sexual abuse that led to severe Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and Multiple Personality Disorder, afflictions that caused her to self-medicate with drugs for much of her adult life. After surviving abusive relationships and homelessness, Kristen has been clean and sober for six years. With therapy, medication and the help of her faithful service dog Kikie, Kristen is now living a full life in recovery and bravely shares her story to community groups and classes to inspire others.

Depending on the audience, Kristen’s presentation can highlight the following topics:
