Dr. Kristen Nicholson, Co-Found and Logistics Magician
Kristen grew up in Clover, South Carolina and is the Logistics Magician for Adventure Geek Productions. As a stellar athlete and human supercomputer, Kristen provides organization and practicality. She is never satisfied with just meeting expectations and naturally surpasses them. With professional research experience from NASA and The Cleveland Clinic under her belt before the age of 20, Kristen is the brain and anchor to Jefferson's muscle and high flying project ideas.
After 12 years participating in events (seeing the good, the bad, and the dehydrated) Kristen stepped into the drivers seat bringing her experiences and achievements to Adventure Geeks. With three years in race directing, Kristen has amassed a wealth of knowledge regarding the thousands of details it takes to make an event a huge success. When she is not filling out forms and making check lists, Kristen is creating her own adventures. She loves to travel, she will try anything once, and she is not afraid to get messy in the process.
Kristen's Professional Race Directing qualifications include:
- B.S. Degree in Mathematical Science from Clemson University
- M.S. & PhD in Biomechanics from The University of Delaware
- 13 years of competitive running experience and 6 years of multi sport racing experience
- Research experience from NASA, The Cleveland Clinic and the U.S. Navy
- Former assistant track coach at West Oak High School
