Miss A Columnist

Kristin Lewnes is a tried and true California girl! She has carried that So Cal personality, style and ease through her many adventures across the country and around the world. Kristin grew up on the sunny beaches of San Diego, but has lived all over the country, including California, Illinois, Indiana, Washington D.C. and now Maryland.

Kristin spent her college years at the beautiful Malibu campus of Pepperdine University, where she followed her passion for people, speaking, analyzing and writing and majored in Rhetorical Theory while having the most incredible time experiencing the adventures of living in L.A.! Her passion for government and making a difference in the world led her to spend a year as a California Senate Fellow. Kristin knew she had more to achieve and went on to Notre Dame Law School to learn how to be “a different kind of lawyer.” After graduating and passing the dreaded California Bar Exam, Kristin brought her sunny personality to Washington, D.C. to “change the world,” while there, she embarked on numerous adventures working for a high-powered, international law firm, the President and then an anti-human trafficking non-profit organization. Then, when she least expected it, an amazing man entered her life (“Lewnes” ring a bell to all you Annapolitans who have enjoyed an incredible steak at The Lewnes Steakhouse), and she got married and moved to the beautiful city of Annapolis – the water was calling her back. Kristin spends her free time embarking on many adventures in Annapolis, across the country and around the world.
