Smile Story: Kristy

meSpring is officially here in Maine! The flowers are in bloom, plants and trees are looking green and happy, and we can’t help but enjoy every last minute outside.

This week, we spent time with Kristy, A Perfect Smile’s Patient Coordinator, to learn more about her love of nature and her plans to hike a different mountain each week this season.

Hi Kristy, can you tell us a bit about yourself: who you are, where you’re from, and what you do?

I was born and raised in southern Maine. Here at A Perfect Smile, I am training to become the new treatment coordinator. In my personal life, I love hiking, reading, and spending time with my fiancé and our families.

When did you first become interested in wellness? 

My interest in wellness began in at young age; I decided to pursue a bachelor’s degree in psychology because I wanted to help people. My junior and senior years of high school I was dually enrolled in YCCC, I completed my bachelors at the age of 20, with a goal of helping others be healthy and happy.

Who are your biggest professional/life inspirations?

I take a lot of my daily life inspirations from my favorite modern poet Mary Oliver, who said “tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and crazy life?” I strive to live my life to fullest, love grandly, and help others always professionally and personally.

What are your favorite spots in your neighborhood (Falmouth or around town)?

My fiancé and I love going to the old port, we love the old buildings and are getting married at Bully Feeney’s next spring. We also love to hike the trails in Yarmouth, on Cousins Island, and Little John Island. We plan to hike a different mountain every weekend this summer.

What music do you currently have on rotation at home or while you work? 

Music is a big part of my life, lately I am listening to a lot of 90s Hip-Hop, but I will always be a punk girl at heart.
