Kristin Mothersbaugh is from a small farm in Ionia, Missouri, USA. Her mother, Ginny Mothersbaugh, is a lab technologist and her father, Roger Mothersbaugh, was a cattle rancher.
Despite being shy as a child, Kristin started acting at a very early age constantly making films with her older brother Dustin R. Mothersbaugh. She also heavily participated in speech team and drama while at Cole Camp High School. When she was 16, she decided she wanted to be an actress for her life-long career.
Kristin then attended State Fair Community College for her Associate of Arts degree. While there, she passionately dedicated all of her time to the theatre department and loved acting in or working backstage in every single play in some fashion. After graduating, Kristin attended Missouri State University for her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Acting. She studied film and screenwriting there as well. During this time, Kristin was constantly in a film acting workshop class, appeared in her first student films, and starred in her first independent feature film.
After college, Kristin moved from Missouri to Los Angeles, California where she now resides. Kristin has wrote, starred in, and produced her own one woman show and has appeared in a few commercials and independent films. In addition, she writes and performs sketch comedy, stand up, and also writes, directs, and produces her own projects.
Kristin is constantly in classes and studying on her own, always developing and growing the craft of her passion of acting. She is on the core track at the Groundlings improvisation school, has private coaching lessons for Voice Dialogue Acting and the Perdekamp Emotional Method, and practices the Unlimited Actor and Energize! techniques as well. She is always inspired by female heroes in fantasy and adventure stories, complex vulnerable characters, and quirky character-based comedy that she hopes to also bring to the worlds of film and television.
In addition to her creative pursuits, Kristin does spiritual work on a daily basis. She runs her own online business Cherry Blossom Spirituality.
In her spare time, Kristin loves yoga, spending time with her cat named Juno, dabbling in other arts, reading, and meditating.
