Kerstin is originally from Indiana but has lived in Los Angeles long enough to call herself basically a native. She has a B.A. in political science from UCLA and a J.D. from Loyola Law School of Los Angeles. She’s currently pursuing a masters of library science from San Jose State University. Kerstin enjoys bicycling, hiking, backpacking, and pretty much anything outdoors. One of her favorite feminist books is The Golden Notebook by Doris Lessing; she’d like to re-read and consider it from the perspective of a more mature person. Lately she’s been interested in writing on body image, and is currently reading Things No One Will Tell Fat Girls by Jes Baker.
