Meet The Bad Tags Team


 Cristen, Owner aka Founder

Cristen launched Bad Tags in the spring of 2014 as a side gig to help fund her dog collar collection. Her inspiration was Moose, her quirky English bulldog who couldn't control his licker and was terribly afraid of cardboard boxes.

What started as a hobby quickly turned into her full time job. In 2016 she quit her job as a Registered Nurse to run Bad Tags full time. She continues to create tags, handles customer service, wholesale, and manage the never-ending needs of a growing small business. 

Cristen lives in Colorado with her 4 very spoiled rescued bulldogs, 2 fat cats, 30 bantam chickens, 5 ducks, and 2 peacocks named Maverick and George.      


Jessica, Queen of Misc. Everything 

Jess joined the Bad Tag team in 2019 and is the glue that keeps the ship sailing! She assists in multiple roles which includes order management and website maintenance. She also is Cristen's in-house assistant and is paid to provide lots of belly rubs and butt scratches to Cristen's dogs!

Jessica lives with her adorable family and 2 cats & 1 dog in Colorado. 



Amy, Production Specialist + Graphic Designer


Amy joined the team during the summer of 2020 and assists in tag design and production. 

Amy lives in Indiana on a tiny hobby farm with her husband, 3 rescue dogs, 3 hamsters, 9 chickens and 3 ducks. She loves spending time with her animals and gardening, as well as knitting, crafting and reading in her free time. You can usually catch her drinking coffee and working on her computer.
