Kristen Jeter was born and raised in the peach state of Georgia. While growing up in the city of Smyrna, Kristen was involved in sports and many extra-curricular activities. She was a Spartans Cheerleader for six years, cheering football, basketball, and competition. Kristen was also heavily involved in student government. She was a member of the Student Leadership Council in middle school and then Class Vice President throughout high school. Kristen started singing in school choirs at the age of nine. By her Senior year in high school, she was Assistant Choir Conductor and lead Jazz Band Singer. She still recalls the infamous Marcus Roberts telling her to "get off the page" and trust in her individuality.

Under the guidance of the passionate teacher Spencer Jordan, Kristen became and award-winning Drama Geek. In a spring production, she was cast in the role of Margo Crane in Marry Orr's The Wisdom of Eve. There was a general lack of morale as senioritis hit most of both casts very hard. During rehearsals, Mr. Jordan issued a test to determine if the play would continue. During a run of the show, the cast was allowed 3 mistakes, 3 chances to mess up a line or make a blocking error. There 67 mistakes in the first act alone! As he had warned, Mr. Jordan cancelled the production and went home for the weekend. The following Monday afternoon, Jeter and other devoted young thespians showed up to rehearsal and demanded that show go on. Spencer Jordan taught his students not to take any opportunity for granted

In 2006, Kristen Jeter attended a convention called the International Presentation of Performers in New York City. There she was one of the selected few, chosen from over 900 people to perform in the talent showcase that concluded the convention. In the showcase, she performed a monologue written and directed by Scott Calcagno. She received the award of 1st Runner Up in said showcase. It was that week in New York City that cemented Jeter's ambitions for Show Business. She then left the International Baccalaureate program, Campbell High School's magnet program with a six-core academic curriculum, to focus on the craft and college auditions

After graduating from high school, Jeter moved to New York City to study Musical Theater at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy. There she excelled and was invited to perform in the honorary "Show and Tell," "Best Of" and "Final Demonstrations".

Professionally, Jeter has been fortunate enough to begin leaving her mark, in the city and around the country, by working hard and staying humble. After a 3 year stent as a Swing, Nabulungi Understudy, and Assistant Dance Captain in the Broadway national tour of The Book of Mormon, Jeter relocated to Atlanta, working in Theatre, Film and Television.
