Kristan was hired in 2006 to launch Students for Life of America’s full-time operation. Students for Life is dedicated to abolishing abortion by identifying, equipping, and mobilizing this pro-life generation, which are the direct targets of today’s abortion industry.

She graduated from Bethany College in 2005, summa cum laude, with a Bachelor’s in Political Science having already jumped into the pro-life community by founding pro-life groups in both her high school and college campuses. After college, she served at the Republican National Committee and as a presidential appointee in the George W. Bush administration at the Department of Health and Human Services. She was recruited to be the President of Students for Life in 2006. Since then she has taken a small group of a few dozen student pro-life groups scattered around the nation, and, alongside her incredible team, has multiplied that number to over 1,100 organized Students for Life groups in all fifty states.

She is the author of Courageous: Students Abolishing Abortion in this Lifetime. She has interviewed on Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, the Today Show, CBS, ABC, and HBO and has recently received the title “One of the 4 worst anti-abortion misinformers” by Media Matters, a title that she is very proud of. She has done this all while being a wife to her husband, raising her four lovely children, and in her “free time” volunteering at the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

Since launching Students for Life, the pro-life generation has been given a voice, and they are using that voice to demand abortions end.
