Herrera has two older brothers and a sister, named Ryan, Justin, and Ashley respectively. She is of Mexican and Puerto Rican descent and speaks fluent Spanish. She attended Hillcrest Christian School in Granada Hills, Los Angeles.

Herrera has been acting in commercials ever since she was six. Her first TV role was in a phone service commercial. Other roles include Eleena on NYPD Blue, Aimee Varga on The Division, Sophie on The Bernie Mac Show, Katie on 7th Heaven and Frederika in ER.

In 2004, at age 15, Herrera was cast as Dana Cruz in Zoey 101, the roommate of Zoey Brooks (Jamie Lynn Spears) and Nicole Bristow (Alexa Nikolas). Following the first season, Herrera’s character was written out of the series  because she kept forgetting her lines, and had personal issues. According to Nikolas, who was allegedly being bullied on set, Herrera was also let go after pushing and harassing Nikolas while filming the final episode of season one (Herrera denied this). Herrera’s character was then replaced by Lola Martinez (Victoria Justice) for the rest of the series. Despite only appearing in Season 1, Kristin is present for all 13 episodes. Her character is mentioned once by Chase in Season 2 “Back to PCA” and appeared in flashbacks during Season 3 “PCA Confidential.” She does not appear in any of the Zoey 101 TV Movies.

She also co-starred in feature film Freedom Writers opposite Hilary Swank. In 2008, Herrera stopped taking acting roles. Her last acting role was on the soap opera General Hospital.

In 2020, she reunited with the Zoey 101 cast on the television show All That.

I think I am my worst critic. I feel like I can always improve.

Honesty, being loyal, just loving you for who you are and just always being there for you. That’s my perfect idea of boyfriend.

I love California. Everything out here is fun. There’s so many things to do, like go to the mall, go down Melrose. So many places – to the beach. You can basically go anywhere and you’ll have fun.

Yes, look is one of the things they look for in acting, but it’s not just that. You can have someone that is absolutely beautiful, but they could not act at all. When it comes to look-wise, I personally don’t think they should go for look because there are so many people out there that are amazing actors and they’re like, ‘Oh wait, you can’t play the part because you don’t look a certain way.’ I think look-wise shouldn’t be a big deal in acting.

Everyone’s so much fun to work with. Jamie Lynn’s – she’s a very, very sweet girl, she’s very down to earth, she’s just fun to be around.

I thought Britney Spears was beautiful and gorgeous, but I didn’t really listen to that type of music because I’m not a really big pop, r&b, and rap person, I’m a rock girl! I was so excited to work with Jamie Lynn,

Dana and I are two completely different people. Dana is very sarcastic, she’s not afraid to say anything, if she has something on her mind, she’ll say it. Basically everyone would call her ‘bossy’. In real life, I’m completely not like that. I’m nice, I make people laugh; I make a fool out of myself. One thing we might both have in common is that we both like basketball,
I was walking in the market one time with my mom, and a manager came up because – well now I always straighten my hair, but then I had big brown curly hair and she’s like, ‘Oh you should be in acting. She seems like she’d be good in doing commercials.’ So my mom looked into it and got me into an agent.

Dana is a very sarcastic girl, very outspoken. She’s not afraid to say what’s on her mind. And if she has a problem with something, then you’ll know.

When I’m working with people that are really, really big and everyone knows their name I’m like, ‘Oh my gosh,” I hope I do good, I hope I don’t mess up.’ Usually I worry before I go in, but once I’m in there I’m like, ‘You know what, I can do this.’
