Hi, I’m Krista. I grew up in a small town in Ohio. I’ve always been the one who's asking the tough questions, thinking outside the box, and laughing the loudest in the room.

I've always had big dreams of getting out and pursuing my purpose. I made a lot of leaps, always searching to find my why. I've always been a spiritual being with a lot of ambition but never quite sure how to harness it. After college and climbing the ladder of corporate America, I started to hear the call of my Soul. So, I quit my job to travel to Patagonia for a month off-grid, leaving Chicago life behind. Eventually I moved to New York City. From there, I worked internationally in events and on the side I started a travel business based out of Morocco. Ultimately I moved to Los Angeles where I met Lindsey, started Almost 30 and finally created a life that I love.

Linds here. Growing up in the suburbs of Philadelphia, I was the type of kid who treated imaginary friends to self-produced three-act musicals in my living room.

I graduated from my fireplace performances and moved on to the big stage as an actress and singer in Boston and NYC. Alongside acting, I’ve worked as a bartender, fit model, and senior SoulCycle instructor.

I was also single during this time, for 6 years, which was pretty spiritual LOL. Unknowingly, this time was the beginning of my journey back to myself. I was seeking a higher expression of my creativity and voice, and a way in which I could just be myself, rather than playing off of someone else's script. That led me to Los Angeles and ultimately to Krista.

Behind the selfies + odd outfits we were two girls going through it…

In true LA fashion, we met at SoulCycle (Lindsey was an instructor and Krista was auditioning but ultimately didn’t get the gig — twice!) That “rejection” brought us together and led to one of the most profound discoveries of our lives. We were both in our Saturn Return and facing the tough transition from our 20s to our 30s. We started having deep, meaningful conversations around spirituality, holistic health, personal development, relationships, and finding purpose.

Hard to believe we took these photos on purpose.

We realized we were...

We decided to record those conversations on our closet floors so we could help others navigate any transition in their lives. After 7 months of practicing, lots of unused recording, and many mistakes along the way, the Almost 30 Podcast was born!

Our first logo! You know what they say — first impressions are everything. 😬

It’s been a windy and beautiful road…

We started the podcast with no experience (or money!) while juggling our full-time jobs. We had no idea what to expect, but we both had a deep inner know that this was something special. We were determined to create an entity that served others and made an impact — and we did! Little by little — in divine timing — we cultivated a community of kind, curious, like-hearted humans who dubbed themselves #Almost30Nation. We connected IRL on a 13-city tour and at our retreats, and online through workshops, events, and our Almost 30 Membership platform. 

Of course we made merch wayyyy before we needed merch.

It all led us to where we are today…

More than seven years in, Almost 30 is a top podcast with more than 75M downloads, a global brand, and community. Just as Almost 30 has grown through the years, so have we. We evolved in our spirituality, relationships, friendships, and most importantly, in our connection to ourselves and the divine. Every day, we’re learning and changing right alongside you…come join us for the ride!

It’s been a blessing to do this together... Throughout it all, we’ve deepened our friendship and laughed….A LOT.
