Kristen Daniels, the owner of 42nd Street Stitches, was born and raised in Southern California’s Surf City USA, Huntington Beach. She is an avid lover of dogs, embroidery (obviously!), photography, adventures, family-time, all things Disney, and anything else related to the arts. As a little girl, she would grab her karaoke machine and Barbie microphone and perform concerts for her family. It was a guarantee that she would be the headlining entertainment at every Christmas dinner.
She attended the University of California, Irvine with a major in Drama and Honors in Musical Theatre. She also has a minor in Psychology and Social Behavior and graduated with Academic Honors. While at UCI, she went on the renowned New York Satellite Program to study musical theater, and became an active member of the Arts Ambassadors and the Creative Connections programs where she worked to spread arts education on campus and inspire arts involvement in children.
Recently, Kristen graduated from UC Irvine and cannot wait to move to New York to continue pursuing a career in theater.
