She has held over twenty international presentations on Nietzsche in the United States, United Kingdom, Chile, Finland and Turkey. As the recipient of the Young Talented Researcher – award, her work has been featured in The Helsinki Times and MTV3. When Krista is not engaged with her research and the two book projects she is currently working on, she paints, enjoys art in NYC, and writes fiction for fun.
