Kit Longnecker

Kit is a Colorado native who has always treasured having so much beauty in her own backyard. Kit graduated from the University of Colorado Boulder in 2014, earning a degree in advertising, and quickly settled in with the Nat Hab crew. When she’s not at work, Kit enjoys spending time in the outdoors. Some of her favorite activities include hiking, biking and camping. Her love of travel was encouraged from a young age by her dad. From weeks-long road trips to national parks to scuba diving in Honduras or camping in the Australian Outback, Kit has always loved visiting other parts of the world to experience things outside of her daily life. She is a strong believer that travel is an essential way to broaden one’s horizons and encourage extraordinary passions. Kit is honored to be a part of the Nat Hab crew, helping people check items off their bucket lists through adventure travel. The first intimate wildlife encounter Kit checked off her own list was swimming with whale sharks in Australia. In the past few years, Kit has had the pleasure of visiting polar bears in Churchill, sea lions in the Galapagos Islands, elephants in Kenya, grizzlies in Alaska and monarch butterflies in Mexico with Nat Hab, and she is excited for many more bucket-list adventures in the future.
