Founder & Chief Executive Officer
Kailyn earned her Bachelor’s degree in Business Management from Colorado State University-Pueblo while playing on the Women’s’ Soccer Team. Upon moving back home to Southern California, she pursued her dream of owning her own business.
Whether she was taking friends out on the ocean for the first time, planning a summer vacation to Catalina Island, finding peace within a Memorial at Sea, or simply getting off land to find balance and enjoy a sunset, the ocean and her family’s vessel the Por Vida, have been her stronghold through all waves of life.
She believes the ocean speaks for itself. Witnessing the pure joy and the memories made on the Por Vida, instilled the idea to create a business that shares the ocean with everyone. She lives by the words “Take care of people and business will take care of itself” and truly aspires to make every charter a special and memorable experience.
