My name is Kristina Bauer I am a mom to three wonderful children ages eleven, three, and one! All three of my children happen to be girls! I was born and raised in Bakersfield, CA and am the oldest of five children. For a short amount of time I did move away and attended college in San Diego, CA! After a few years living in southern California I decided to move back to Bakersfield to be closer to my family. Five years ago I met my husband Luke while he was visiting friends in Bakersfield. After one short year of dating we got married in Maui, Hi among a few of our closest friends and family. The last four years I have spent at home with my children volunteering in their classrooms, substitute teaching, and mentoring teen mothers through Youth for Christ at a local high school! Substitute teaching and the volunteer work I do has made it apparent that I truly have a passion for children, their education, and future! Before I took on the ranks of stay at home mommy I worked in the finance industry at Merrill Lynch as a client advisor, as much as I did enjoy my career I never felt as fulfilled as I do when I work with kids!
