Kristina Johnson is a lifestyle writer for Romper, where she writes about everything from pregnancy and parenting to shopping and gift guides. Kristina’s work has appeared on Pregnant Chicken, HuffPost, Sammiches and Psych Meds, Mommy Nearest, and more. Before focusing on writing full-time, she worked as a TV news producer. Kristina is the mom of two small children, so she’s always a little sleep deprived. When she’s not working, she enjoys exploring NYC with her family, checking out more books than she can ever possibly finish from the library, and marathon-watching 'The Office' over and over again.
