Kristin Burrell

I am the CEO and General Counsel of Vistavation LLC, a 100% woman-owned and veteran-owned business that innovates, invents, researches and develops imaginative products such as Redonkulary®. I am an Army veteran, lawyer, wife, mother, and entrepreneur.

My entrepreneurial spirit emerged at an early age, as an Army brat and child of parents with Wanderlust. In kindergarten in California, I picked lemons from a tree in our yard and sold them to neighbors. In elementary school in Connecticut, my friend and I created a mobile craft store by nailing dresser drawers to a wagon and sold our wares door-to-door. As a tween in Germany, I used my experience as a year-round competitive swimmer to start my own business teaching swimming lessons. And, as a teenager in Kansas, Massachusetts, and Connecticut I worked as a lifeguard.

I always dreamed of flying, so I earned an Army ROTC scholarship, served as the USC Army ROTC Color Guard Commander, became a paratrooper, qualified as an expert marksman, and received a Regular Army commission. I got into flight school before discovering I was medically disqualified to become a pilot. Plan B: I became an Army Reservist, used my military skills to land a background role as a soldier in the movie “Renaissance Man,” starring Danny DeVito, and went to law school.

Fast-forward two decades, through numerous relocations, a career as an Army officer and as a lawyer, and I found myself on a long trip in a foreign country with my two young, antsy children. I began making up silly words and even sillier definitions with the kids. And voila: Redonkulary® was born! Redonkulary®is a hilarious word game that combines the fun of making up ridiculous words and corresponding definitions with the art of persuasion.

I am thrilled to be finally manifesting my vision of making the world a brighter place by spreading joy, community and laughter through my new game, Redonkulary®—and my future endeavors!
