Kristin was born and raised in Hawaii, very set out on a career in the beauty industry. Even with living in Hawaii her whole life, she never really experienced the ocean or even knew how to swim. After seeing some amazing underwater photos, Kristin took interest in the ocean through photography, and in 2011, she set out a mission to learn how to swim.

With spearfishing as a Hawaiian lifestyle, Kristin was inspired by her friends to get into it. As soon as she put her mask on and got underwater, she realized the endless beauty she was missing and her underwater curiosity grew. After a freediving course in 2015, this started her passion for exploring the deeper depths.

Over the past few years, Kristin has entered several competitions, achieving impressive depths, taking podiums and setting US records – and is quickly progressing to come the deepest female in the US.
