Kristen Studard was born on August 26th, 1981 in Hinsdale, IL. She spent her formative years moving from one Chicago suburb to another, with a breif stint in Tennessee. In 1999 Kristen began Bradley University where she was a founding member of the sketch and improv troupe The Roost. After graduating from Bradley in 2003 with a B.

Kristen has been studying and performing improv in Chicago since late 2004. She is a graduate of the iO Training Center and the Second City Conservatory.
During the day Kristen is lucky to work for the amazing folks at www.threadless.com . At night she can be found performing at iO with Our Feature Presentation and her Harold team Roadster or just generally carousing.
Her favorite movie of 2006 was Little Miss Sunshine. It made her laugh and cry- at the same time!
