Kristin Brown's Vita
Hello, I am originally from Waterloo, Illinois and have lived in Mattoon since 2008. I have been teaching at Eastern Illinois University since 2009 and came aboard full time in 2013. At EIU, I get to enjoy my two passions in life; teaching and the business of sport. I live in Mattoon with my wonderful husband Chris, and my amazing 3 year old son, Landon.
