Who is Kristina Basham?
Kristina Basham was born on the 31st July 1988, in Walnut Creek, California USA, and is best known as an internet celebrity, and an Instagram model. Besides these, she is also widely recognized as the spouse of the comic book writer and millionaire Scott Adams, as well as for running her own bakery business – LeVasseur Confectionary – in San Francisco, California.
Kristina Basham’s early life and elementary school
Kristina’s family background is that she is also of Italian and French ancestry from her father’s family as well as of German descent from her mother’s side, and is of white ethnicity. Alongside her brother, she was actually raised in Fairfield, California, and due to her exceptional intelligence, she began her kindergarten education at the early age of four. However, her teachers soon noticed that Kristina was rather introverted, detached from the surrounding world and that she had problems with bonding with other pupils, and a year later, five-year old Kristina was diagnosed with OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) and was put under treatment immediately. Following the second grade of elementary school, being ahead of her peers, she could have skipped the following two grades, and enroll in the Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) program, however, because of her quite undeveloped social skills at that time, her parents decided to decline the offer. During the rest of her elementary school, Kristina was actively involved in sports, cross country running in particular, for which she was honored with a gold medal.

Kristina’s modeling career and higher education
Entering middle school as an honor student, she continued to excel at cross country running while expanding her interests to clarinet, piano and flute playing. During the first year of her middle school, while having lunch with her father in a restaurant, 11-year old Kristina was approached by a modeling agent who offered her a contract which was quickly accepted, and she signed a contract and subsequently dived into the world of modeling. Regardless, upon matriculation, she enrolled at the University of California, Berkeley, from which she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree, majoring in economics, then continued her education at Berkeley’s Graduate school and obtained her Master of Arts degree in Financial Economics. After subsequently working briefly in a corporate environment, Kristina felt that her creativity was being suffocated, and decided to quit her job and chase a modeling career full time. The next two years, she spent between New York City and London, UK, collaborating with several big names in the fashion industry, such as Tom Ford, Tommy Hilfiger, Carolina Herrera, Balenciaga and Jimmy Choo. She also appeared as a brand ambassador for Emirates Airlines, Aston Martin, Nissan and Disney.
Being “haunted by mental dissatisfaction”, in 2016 Kristina officially withdrew from modeling, and returned to her former business career – she founded her own bakery and candy company in the San Francisco bay area, named Le Vasseur Confectionary. However, she still occasionally appears in high fashion events, including fashion weeks in New York City, Milan, Paris and London.
Kristina Basham’s Social Media and personal appearance
With a curvaceous figure weighing 110 lbs (50 kgs) and measuring 32″- 24″ – 34″, it is no wonder that this 5 ft 6ins (165 cms)-tall dark haired beauty with grey eyes has managed to made quite a successful career in the modeling industry. Her “fire-breathing” figure and apparent sex appeal has also brought Kristin Basham huge popularity on social media networks such as Instagram, on which she has amassed more than 4.5 million followers. Her profile is abundant with photos of her “smoking hot” appearance, posing in various rather revealing outfits. Besides this, she is also very active on Twitter.
What is Kristina Basham’s Net Worth?
Have you ever wondered how much wealth this 29-year old Instagram star has accumulated so far? How rich Kristina Basham is? The estimated sum by authoritative sources of Kristina’s total wealth as of mid-2018 is over $3 million, but taking into consideration that she has been in the modeling business since her age of 11 in addition to owning her independent bakery business as well as her marriage to a millionaire, very likely this may be understated. Also, it is certain that her knowledge in financial economics and the total size of her net worth can easily hold her philanthropic efforts in supporting institutions such as St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital as well as the Make-A-Wish foundation.
Considering all the time spent in bed over the last few months, it’s a good thing I love my bedroom ? still looking forward to #Hawaii which is now 3 days away! I seriously took for granted all the traveling I used to do. I’ve been all around the world but this trip is extra special because I was supposed to go in October but had to cancel because of my unexpected medical treatments and surgery. When I had to cancel the trip I thought there was a good chance I would never get to see Hawaii again. ? Man, the things that go through your mind… ? anyhow thanks @montagekapalua for allowing me to reschedule the trip. They had found the tumor literally three days before I was supposed to leave for Hawaii. Life is sweet again ?? fingers crossed it stays that way LOL
