Kristen and her husband Alex moved to St. Louis in the summer of 2016 for Alex to attend graduate school at Saint Louis University while Kristen went on staff with RUF at WashU. Before coming to WashU, Kristen was an RUF intern at Texas A&M for two years. She and Alex met through RUF at Mississippi State University and both are so thankful for the impact this ministry had on their lives. The Thompsons enjoy any and all sports, both watching and playing, as well as getting together with family or playing games with friends. With both of them born and raised in the south, they are enjoying their first taste of midwestern life in St. Louis!
