Meet the Leaders: Kristen Hurt

Kristen Hurt was raised in Pennsylvania and moved to Idaho in 2006 to attend ISU.  She fell in love, got married, and became an Idaho resident.  Her babywearing obsession began when her oldest daughter was seven months old.  Kristen missed singing and wanted to join her church choir but the baby was too wiggly for that to work.  At her first babywearing meeting she borrowed a beautiful ring sling and has been hooked on the babywearing lifestyle ever since.

When daughter number two came along, Kristen learned to wrap and has been wrapping for hours a day ever since!  She recently became a Volunteer Babywearing Educator (VBE) through Babywearing International (BWI) and is now helping to lead meetings in Idaho Falls to help everyone else learn to wear their babies!

Kristen lives in Ammon with her husband, two step-sons, two daughters, and two dogs.  She currently teaches part-time for the Idaho Digital Learning Academy and for Idaho State University.  In her spare time she volunteers with several community and school organizations with one (or more) babies wrapped on her.
