Krysten is the granddaughter of the iconic Evel Knievel and the daughter of Robbie Knievel, who followed in his father’s footsteps as a daredevil. While she has chosen a different career path than her father and grandfather, Krysten has still become a celebrity in her own right. She is an accomplished singer and has performed the national anthem at some of the nation’s largest venues; including NBA playoff games.
She also serves as the spokesperson for the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation, the disease that stole Evel away from the world. She recently starred in a PSA for the Foundation and is also the head of the planning committee for a large fund raising event in Las Vegas that will raise funds to build Evel Knievel Pulmonary Centers at National Jewish Health and the University of Washington.
