I’m Kristina, a 29-year-old mom of two. My roots are in Alberta, Canada, which is where I still am. I guess they’re pretty deep roots!

When I’m not chasing the baby I’m usually composing music, playing piano, cross-stitching or, of course, writing.

Creativity has been a huge part of my healing journey. I live with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and sensory processing issues as the result of sexual abuse and assault. It’s not always easy, but having the right medical and social support has meant the world to me.

I finally believe that I am a warrior with valuable things to say. Maturing Mama has given my voice a platform and encouraged me to use it. I hope my insights can help other moms feel less alone, and I am so grateful to be here!

Strength and solidarity,
