High School History Teacher, Lacrosse Coach, & Owner of Ventre's Adventures
Based in Atlanta, Georgia
Kristy is #EverydayExploring IRL! As a high school teacher and coach she finds new adventures with her students in the classroom and on the field. She believes that #EverydayExploring can not only apply when finding adventures around the world, but is a way to see the positive and newness of each and every day wherever you are.
Her small business story is as unique as it is adventurous! As an avid world traveler, she filled her history lectures with travel stories and noticed that her students were eager to travel and begged to join in on her adventures. Ventre’s Adventures was born. The name, logo, and hashtag were all created by Kristy's high school students.
Ventre’s Adventures, is a student travel company that creates transformative learning experiences that will not only shape students’ futures, but also have students learn from people who will impact their lives. It offers students “gram-worthy” moments, a sense of nomadic camaraderie, and the confidence to follow their dreams. Ventre’s Adventures also practices sustainability as they partner with local businesses and give back to the local community through service. Since 2010, Kristy has traveled to over 30 countries across 6 continents. From hiking through Machu Picchu, cage diving in South Africa, dog sledding in Norway, and zip lining in Costa Rica...the adventures never end.
When she's not coaching, teaching, or traveling you can find Kristy in a CrossFit Class, cruising in her Jeep with the top down, or cheering on the New England Patriots.
