About

Kristendom is the online world and persona of Kristen Abell (me, in case you hadn’t guessed). I’ve been blogging personally since 2006, about my life, my passions, my relationships, being a mother, feminism, reading, pretty much whatever enters this vastly interesting head of mine.

In 2010, I started my blog on technology and student affairs – Kristendom Talks Tech. This is my attempt to enter the blogosphere in a more professional manner – writing about things I love and things I encounter in my work.

Professionally, I’m a web coordinator at the University of Missouri-Kansas City working primarily with our Division of Student Affairs and Enrollment Management, where I have worked since 2007 (first as the Assistant Director of the Women’s Center, then as the Associate Director and Director for Residential Life). I have worked in student affairs full-time since 2001, where I started my career at the University of Kansas. I completed both my bachelor’s in psychology, women’s studies and English and my master’s in social welfare at the University of Kansas. During my time in student affairs, I’ve developed a deep and unrelenting passion for technology, much to the appreciation (and sometimes chagrin) of my colleagues and higher-ups.

In addition to my day job, I am also the loving partner of a housing officer and student affairs junkie (at a different university, of course – one university is not big enough for the both of us). And we are both parents of one wild, rambunctious, wickedly smart and entirely too well-spoken seven-year-old. He makes frequent appearances in my personal blog, in case you hadn’t noticed.

So that, my friends, is Kristendom in a nutshell.
