Kris Maines was born in Pasadena, CA to 2 brits from Liverpool. Irish grandparents from Kerry. I have a twin sister named Kerry also. I was raised in New Zealand, UK, and USA as a child. I've be been a nurse for 7 years now and for the last 3 years I have been a mental health nurse. I've been married to my high school sweetheart for 2 and a half years now. No kids yet, hopefully soon. My father Jim passed away 6 months ago, I think he would have been very proud of me for being nominated.
