Krista F. is a writer, anthropologist, poet, and fitness professional. Her eclectic interests, along with a Master's Degree in Cultural Anthropology from Indiana University in Bloomington and a Bachelor's Degree in English and Anthropology/Sociology from Albion College in Michigan provide her with a unique skill set and knowledge base as a writer.
She worked as a radio news anchor and writer, composing short news stories with spot on sound bites for concise news reports and longer interview pieces in a talk show format. She's a keen interviewer one on one.
In addition, her background in anthropology and ethnography has given her a knack for understanding how to communicate with different demographics. Her work as an archaeologist helped her develop good technical writing and research skills.
Krista F. has been an ACE Group Exercise Certified Instructor for 18 years, during which time she's worked at a variety of fitness facilities. She coordinated the group exercise program at a medically integrated wellness and fitness center for five years, where she marketed the program, monitored staff, kept up with trends and more. Her understanding of various groups helps her market fitness classes to people of all ages. Her interaction with these groups, individual gym members, and staff further enriches her ability to communicate effectively.
In addition to news writing and fitness promotion, Krista has published poems, essays, and academic papers in various periodicals focused on everything from parenting to archaeology and economic anthropology.
She enjoys mental and physical gymnastics. Her love of physical movement fuels her writing philosophy. Krista has an athletic work ethic. For her, taking a complicated set of ideas and stream-lining it into an understandable, clear format is an exciting challenge. Every double-back flip is just energy harnessed and funneled into a tight clean well-executed tuck. It is spectacular to watch and the viewer has no idea how much practice and thought went into the maneuver. An effective piece of writing, no matter the content, should be entertaining, fluid and seamless, according to Krista.
