Kristin Luna

Writer & Contributor

Tennessee journalist Kristin Luna has worked in the media as a writer and editor for 20+ years, contributing to a long list of titles that includes Parade, This Old House, Angi, Home Advisor, Southern Living, Forbes, Robb Report, Real Simple, Redbook and USA Today. While she focuses heavily on multi-generational travel having visited more than 130 countries and all 50 states, Kristin also has extensive experience researching and writing about all facets of home ownership, as well as making cities more livable for the population at large. Caring for her father for six years after a debilitating stroke gave Kristin better insight to the problems that disabled and aging homeowners experience.

Kristin has a strong interest in making cities more livable for aging populations, as well as providing free universal access to art. As a byproduct of this passion, Kristin and her husband Scott started a nonprofit, DMA-events (for Do. More. Art.), with the guiding purpose to activate the environment through the installation of original public art in rural areas of the South. To date, the 501(c)(3) organization has installed more than 40 large-scale murals in cities and towns of all sizes across the South.
