Kristen Domonell

I love breathing deeply, being surrounded by more beauty than I can handle, and questioning the status quo.


I am an Oakland-based health, wellness, and fitness writer whose work has appeared in publications including: Women's Health, Vice,  Prevention, Men's Health, Life by Daily Burn, Self, University Business, The Huffington Post, CNN, The Daily Beast, and more. I also co-founded and served as editorial director of Chronicality, a publication designed to help young people live well in spite of chronic illness.

I hold a master's degree in health communication from Northwestern University and a bachelor's in journalism from Marist College.

In my spare time I enjoy hiking, gardening, meditation, exploring mindful uses of technology, and building community.

I want to be famous in the way a pulley is famous, or a buttonhole, not because it did anything spectacular, but because it never forgot what it could do.
