About Kristen:

Captain Kristen loved sailing TRIM AGAIN, BRILLIANT and driving ENCORE. During her three year struggle with  cancer, in addition to keeping the spirits up of those around her, continuing to work as VP of Marketing & Business Development of OHS Companies, President of OHS Sleep Center Partners, volunteering with Sail Trim Again Charters and to bring happiness, love and joy to her family, friends and associates, Kristen managed to achieve her captains license. Her kind spirit, love of life, warmth, empathy and beauty was a gift to us all. Kristen would be embarrassed but also honored to be the inspiration for this program.


As a certified health coach, Kristen was an advocate for the need for everyone, especially healthy women to have a colon screening starting at age 45! Kristen a strong, athletic and healthy woman that had regular physical exams was diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer at 51!

" I was set free! I dissolved in the sea, became white sails and flying spray, became beauty and rhythm, became moonlight and the ship and the high dim-starred sky! I belonged, without past or future, within peace and unity and a wild joy, within something greater than my own life, or the life of Man, to Life itself!..."" Eugene O'Neill, Long Days Journey into Night.
