My name is Kristen Hovet and I am a journalist and writer who specializes in the areas of psychology, health, science, and the intersection of sociology and culture.

I have been a member of the National Association of Science Writers since 2016, the Canadian Association of Journalists since 2017, and The International Association of Yoga Therapists since 2017.

I embrace both art and science, but make a point of challenging pseudoscience and promoting healthy skepticism and critical thinking.

I received a degree in English from Simon Fraser University, and have completed certificate courses in Epigenetics, Personalized Medicine, Human Physiology, and Genetics and Evolution.

Born in Williston, North Dakota, I have moved over 30 times in my life, and currently reside in Vancouver, British Columbia with my family.

When I'm not writing, I love to read, travel, study the Norwegian language, listen to music, attend concerts, peruse Netflix, and do yoga. I'm pursuing training to become a yoga teacher.
