Kali is a senior majoring in Environmental Studies and originally hails from San Pedro, California. Growing up in this seaside community on the edge of the Pacific, she spent her childhood sailing, paddling, snorkeling, and hiking her way through the local Channel Islands. In addition to being on the water, some of her fondest memories are of summer family camping trips in the Sierras.
During her time at USC she has participated in a SCUBA research trip to Guam and Palau, lived in the British Virgin Islands for the summer working at a sailing and diving camp, and most recently returned from a semester abroad in Cape Town, where she had the chance to eat more barbeque than she previously thought possible and soak up an extra Southern Hemisphere summer. South Africa also gave Kali her first real taste of rock climbing and surfing, two sports in which she hopes to gain more proficiency during the coming months. No matter where she is she enjoys drawing energy and inspiration from the great outdoors and the passionate, colorful people she meets along the way. She couldn’t be more excited to adventure into her final college year with the SC Outfitter community!
