Kristen Hirsch Montag is a senior public relations and communications manager for Meet Minneapolis, Convention and Visitors Association, by day and self-professed theatre geek by night.

She also does freelance PR and sells Mary Kay along with the journalistic pursuits. Interviewing Laura Osnes, Kevin McCollum, Anthony Rapp and Rita Moreno are BWW highlights over the past seven years. Kristen holds a bachelor's degree from Augsburg College in Theatre Arts and Communications.
