Kristen Schmidt


Kristen has been editor of Columbus Monthly since September 2012. She previously was editor of Columbus Alive and an editor and reporter at daily newspapers in suburban Chicago. Somewhere in there she took a year away from journalism and earned a certificate of culinary arts from Washburne Culinary Institute in Chicago. (She can still make a mean hollandaise.) Away from the office, Kristen cooks, shops, runs and reads—just not all at the same time. She lives in Victorian Village.
