I’m Kristen, but most people call me kiki.

By day, I’m a Marketing Manager at Abrams Books, and I also work as a freelance fashion stylist, where I specialize in editorial photoshoots and personal styling for clients.  I moonlight as the style blogger behind Cats in My Closet and Editor-in-Chief & Publisher of Monachopsis, an online fashion magazine that aims to center marginalized voices. 

I boast nearly a decade of experience in the fields of public relations, writing, marketing, publishing, advertising, sales, event planning, social media management, and blogging. I received a Bachelor's Degree in Communication in 2012, and I’m currently earning a Fashion Styling certificate at Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT). Be sure to view my LinkedIn profile for full details of my work experience, education, and recommendations.
