Born to sailing parents, Kristi first sailed to the Caribbean onboard the 82' Fife ketch Isabelle in 1972, where she spent many years sailing with her family and living in the US / Caribbean. She was educated in the United States and holds a BS in Zoology / Chemistry, but due to her love of the sea and warm water sailing she moved to Antigua, WI in 1992 where she raised her family until 2007, when she relocated to Newport, RI and is now the managing director of BWA New England, offering a full range of yacht support services.
Kristi has been working in the Superyacht industry for the last 22 years, which has provided her with access to a vast network of resources and contacts in the yachting industry. Her passion for travel has taken her all over the world by air, sea and land; she continues to discover new destinations and is currently researching and writing the New England & Bermuda regions for the USA Guide, which started in 2008 for the research of the first USA Guide.
