About Kristan

I am an educational consultant, writer, and mom to two teenagers.

After earning a Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction, I co-developed an academic support skills curriculum at the Duke Child and Family Study Center.

My first publication Let’s TALK: A Problem-Solving Curriculum for Girls is based on the programming documented in this blog Friends TALK.

My second book is a memoir about our family dog Smooch. Be sure to check out my website or Amazon.com in June of 2024.
