Born in the San Francisco Bay area, Kaisa has been an avid sailor since the age of 10. As a young girl she spent two years cruising onboard a 38′ sailboat from California to the Caribbean. Her travels took her through Mexico, Costa Rica, the Panama Canal, San Blas Islands, Colombia, Venezuela, and finally the entire Caribbean.
This fueled her desire to pursue travel and yachting which led her to becoming a licensed Captain and Sailing Instructor in her early twenties. Since, Kaisa has immersed herself in all aspects of yachting, including Charter Brokerage and Fleet Management, Captain and Sailing Instructor, Chief Stewardess, Crew Placement Agent and Skipper/ Whale Research assistant. She has successfully combined her love of all things on and in the water and travel into many challenging career opportunities.
As a Charter Fleet Manager in the Abaco Bahamas, Kaisa worked with both owners and charter guests to ensure quality vacations. She spent multiple seasons in the Bahamas and South Pacific skippering and assisting research for The Center for Cetacean Research and Conservation studying Humpback and Beaked Whales. When she finally settled down on land, Kaisa used her onboard experience to place crew on many notable charter and private yachts, which finally led to her position in Charter Management. With a varied fleet ranging in size from 80-200 feet, Kaisa handles charters from the Pacific North West to the Mediterranean and all the legalities and intricate details that differ with the cruising areas.
Previously with Fraser Yachts and Bartram & Brakenhoff, Kaisa has joined Denison Yacht Sales to continue building the Charter Division. Always eager to utilize her strong understanding of vessel operations and international travel, Kaisa draws from her years of onboard and land-based experience to provide the ultimate charter experience. In her spare time Kaisa enjoys her family and spending time between her homes in Fort Lauderdale, the Bahamas and New Mexico.
