Sea Kayak Guide Profile: Sierra Stretton

 

Sierra Stretton moved to Auckland in 2006 from Palmerston North to join the New Zealand Navy where she specialised in Communications and Radar. With the Defence Force, Sierra got to travel the world with friends working in interesting places like the waters off Somalia and the Sub-Antarctic Islands.
After 7 years, experiencing different adventures and cultures her love for the outdoors grew and she decided to make it her career.
This lead Sierra to Auckland University of Technology where she is currently working towards a Diploma in Outdoor Recreational Leadership.
Sierra also works as our Operations Manager (as more organised than Nic) and likes to keep fit and spend time with family and friends.
