Kristen Hogan is the marketing director of YMCA of the Capital Area and a mother of four: Dylan, 11; Addison, 5; Colton, 3; Bryson, 1. Kristen studied marketing at ULL and Southeastern, before landing her dream job at the Y, where ironically, she met Michael, her husband of seven years. Kristen says there are two things that get her excited: the Y and her kids. But as much as she loves her job, it’s the latter that really gets her worked up. Four seems like a lot, but Kristen’s attitude? “I would have more if Mike would let me! They’re a blessing. It’s a ton of work, but there’s never a dull moment. I’m going to be so bored when they get older—that's when I’m really going to want another.”
