Born and raised in the Philadelphia area, Kayleigh moved to Hawaii shortly after graduating college in pursuit of an exciting new journey that would help her further connect with her passion for travel and the ocean, an obsession began at a very young age when she first saw the Little Mermaid and dreamed of exploring the ocean depths alongside Ariel. While living in Hawaii and going through a bad breakup, she remembered looking around at her life and not being entirely happy with everything that she saw. She had a good job, lived in Hawaii, amazing friends, but there was something missing and she had no clue what it was. So, she decided to take a step back. She moved out of her place, quit her job, bought a plane ticket to Thailand, and went on a month-long, soul-searching journey. When the time was up she vowed to herself that when she got back home to Hawaii, she would never do a job again that she didn’t love. Kayleigh was already diving as a weekly hobby, but it was around this time that she made it her life’s work. After completing her Dive Masters training and some initial work in the field, she met Ocean Ramsey and Juan Oliphant, two of the world-leading experts in shark conservation, and begun a life dedicated to helping the world fall in love with the Ocean and the amazing life within.
