Raised in Richmond, VA, Kristen has always been a lover of animals, the outdoors, photography, and adventure. What better way to combine those loves than to take up diving?
She became OW certified in May 2013 and completed the Divemaster course in July 2016. Her favorite place to dive, so far, is with the sea turtles in Bonaire; bucket list locations include Costa Rica, Australia, and the kelp forests of the West Coast.
When she’s not underwater, you can find her outside, camera in hand, with her dogs.
