Hi, my name is Kristen! I’m a photographer, travel writer, and entrepreneur currently living in Wisconsin with my fiance and our cat Luna.

Miss Northerner was created in 2017 and has become the largest personal travel & lifestyle blogs dedicated to the Midwest.

I love showcasing the beauty of this part of the US and all it has to offer. From beautiful outdoor landscapes to unique stays, my goal is to share my personal travel experiences to help inspire others.

To see more day-to-day happenings, you can head over to my Instagram. Thank you so much for following along!
