20 Questions with Kristjana Hillberg

Meet Kristjana Hillberg - a South Dakota based military spouse, public relations pro, and parent to three kiddos (one of whom she co-parents - and drives drive back and forth across the state every other weekend for drop offs/pick ups!)

When she's not consulting with her clients on podcast and media placement, she enjoys thrifting and eating scones at the local bakery. 

She has a pretty cool claim to fame too - but you'll have to read her responses to her 20 Questions here to find out what it is! 

(And don't forget to follow along on her day-in-the-life tomorrow, Friday May 14thon our Instagram!

Kristjana Hillberg and family


  1.       What’s your favorite place in the entire world? 

I haven’t traveled the world (yet) but out of ALL of the places I’ve visited, I truly fell in love with the Dominican Republic.  I loved the vibe.  The locals.  EVERYTHING! I went for a circus retreat...my flexibility was on point in that heat!

  1.       What’s the best parenting advice you’ve ever received?

Each one of your babies is different.  Make sure and parent them the way they need to be parented. 

  1.       Do you have any pets?

Our fierce tiger kitty, Fiona!

  1.       What is something you’re grateful for today? 

My husband.  I don’t tell him enough, but having him as a partner...a true partner is so comforting.  I know he’s always in my corner.  He makes me laugh & helps me grow...it’s my favorite thing. 

  1.       First thing I do in the morning: 

Make a latte :)

  1.       What’s your biggest goal in life right now? 

To create impact.  To help others tell their stories!

  1.       Last person you hugged?

My 8 year old girl Lily.

  1.       What did you want to be when you were a kid?

A Broadway star!!

  1.       What’s your claim to fame?

I’ve been an aerialist in the circus!

  1.   What are you saving money for right now?

Paying off our truck. 

  1.   What’s your favorite brunch item?

Ooooooo….either pancakes or eggs benedict! (and obvi, mimosa!)

  1.   Who has been the most influential person in your life?

So many people have touched my life.  Depending on the time & decade, I’d say the most consistent person has been my mentor Alison.

  1.   What’s your biggest day-to-day challenge?

Time blocking & preserving my energy. :)

  1.   When have you given up on something?

I don’t give up too quickly...I gave up on the hope that everyone would like me or be attracted to the vibe I put out.  It used to really matter to me.  Now I try to really focus on alignment & intention around everything. 

  1.   What is your favorite way to spend a Saturday?

Teaching a barre class, sipping coffee with Kurt, playing with the kids, going on a family outing, and game night!

  1.   How did you meet your best friends?

College.  We each live in a different state, but we’re just as close as we were at 19.

  1.   Do you think you could live in another country?


  1.   What gift have you received that you will always treasure?

A piece of artwork that my girlfriend Jeanine made.  I was at her home & commented on it, and a few months later she gifted it to me. 

  1.   Night owl or morning person?

Neither...but I’d much rather wake up early than stay up late...UNLESS it’s laughing with my besties. 

  1.   Favorite music genre? 

Gosh...all of it!  I love music.  I can get down to almost anything.
