Kendra Olson

Kendra grew up just outside of Chicago, where she spent most of her time in the pool swimming and playing water polo. Family trips inspired her love for travel and exploration from a young age. Early adventures included dog sledding in Yellowstone, whitewater rafting in Montana, biking down the Haleakala Crater in Hawaii, and annual road trips to Kiawah Island, South Carolina to kayak in the marshlands, watch baby sea turtles rush to the sea and search for alligators.

After graduating in 2008 from Santa Clara University in California, Kendra moved back to Chicago. By 2013, she realized she needed more outdoor adventure in her life, and she found her new home in Colorado. She loves the opportunity to get outside (whether it's camping, hiking, running or cross-fitting) to enjoy Colorado's beautiful weather and even more beautiful scenery.

Spending four months studying abroad in Spain made Kendra realize how big her travel passion is—and her wish list for future adventures grew long. In 2015, Kendra went cage diving with great white sharks at Guadalupe Island, off the coast of Mexico. In 2018, she felt lucky to join Nat Hab’s Base Camp Greenland adventure, where she immersed in the incredible beauty of one of our planet’s more remote areas. She continues towards her goal of taking as many unique, epic, life-changing trips to experience the rarely traveled parts of the world as possible. She firmly believes the world would not be so diverse if we weren't meant to experience that diversity.
