Originally from Centerville, Ohio, Kristyn relocated to South Florida in 2009, and graduated Nova Southeastern University with a Masters in Marine Biology in 2012. With her education and passion for marine-life, Kristyn began her career by joining a non-profit organization where she managed a remote research field station in Bimini, Bahamas. This entailed frequently flying over to the station to assist the current PhD candidate's research on shark activity. Her position also required regular equipment monitoring and maintenance, data gathering and tracking, and the handling of the various shark species around the island.
This experience segued into Kristyn joining the yachting industry in 2013, as the Sunseeker Florida Service Assistant, helping coordinate the warranty works and after-sales part orders for all of Sunseeker Florida yachts. This position included daily communications with the factory based in Poole, England, while project managing and coordinating with the team of yacht subcontractors in South Florida.
In 2015, Kristyn joined Outer Reef Yachts as a Service Team Administrator based in the company's Fort Lauderdale headquarters. She strives to ensure the highest quality customer experiences and care as it pertains to yacht commissioning, service and warranty while contributing to the growth of this department.
In her free-time, Kristyn enjoys fostering kittens, spoiling her own two cats, as well as playing kickball and volleyball.
