Born in year 1969 and raised in Fairbanks, Alaska, Kirsten Powers studied at the University of Maryland. After graduating, she attended law school in Georgetown University for a year and a half. Raised as an Episcopalian, she spent most of her adult life as a non-denominational Christian, believing everyone was equal before God. As she approached her 40s, after dating a man who introduced her to the Redeemer Presbyterian Church and Tim Keller, Kristen became an evangelical Christian. Her conversion to Orthodox Evangelism was a massive change to her life, in her words. And, as she has sent most of her life dealing with politics, it was inevitable that her new-found faith would affect that aspect of her life as well.
She has said that through Christianity, she came to "view everyone as God's child and that God offers the gift of salvation." It was this belief that would come to define her political beliefs, in an attempt to seek equality and interpersonal grace. To her more personal life and affairs, she dated Anthony Weiner for a short period of time in 2002. However, they parted as good friends. Then, in 2010, she married Dr. Marty Makary, a professor at the Department of Public Health of Johns Hopkins University. But in 2013, the couple filed for a divorce. However, both have been reticent to discuss their divorce or other details of their personal life. As a result, Her net worth and salary are not known to the public.
Powers served in the Clinton Administration as an Assistant U.S. Trade Representative for Public Affairs from 1993 to 1998. She also held the post of Vice President at the International Communications Department of America Online. Then, after AOL’s merge with Time Warner, she served for a brief period as Vice President at the AOL-Time Warner Foundation. With the fallout of the AOL merger clear, she moved on to become a press secretary for the DNC Committee chair race with Donnie Fowler. She had a role in at least one major political election. However, the Andrew Cuomo’s election campaign for Governor chose not to mention her services as Communications Director in the Virginia Fields mayoral campaign.
