Kristen Willms (kwillms211)

Joined 7 years ago from Florida. Last activity 2 weeks ago.




Also follow me on:

When not going by the non de plume The Mighty Aquarian, I'm usually called Mom, Grandma or Kristen Willms. I answer to all of these. I have been writing fiction, nonfiction and poetry for over 30 years. I maintain a blog, Random Thoughts of the Mighty Aquarian, that I started in 2007.

I am a proud alumna of Alexandria Senior High in Louisiana (Go Trojans!) since 1988. I received my Associate of Arts from the school formerly known as Brevard Community College (Go Titans!) in 2013. I graduated with a B.A. in English-Creative Writing December 2015 from the University of Central Florida (Go Knights!). I have plans to attend graduate school, where the mascot will probably be warrior themed, if my current pattern holds.

I am a volunteer with Emergency Service of the American Red Cross since 2002. In my time with the organization, I have worked as part of the relief efforts of the 2004 hurricane season, chapter support for Hurricanes Katrina and Wilma, and have taught CPR, First Aid, Disease Prevention and HIV/AIDS Education courses. Currently for my (paying) day job, I am a Community Association Manager.

I am a mother of two amazing children, a grandmother of the most adorable girl in all the world, and adopted mom of my furry baby. I've lived in Florida for about half my life at this point, and before that was bounced all over the country as part of a military family.
