    Kirstie Ennis lives in the Roaring Fork Valley area in Colorado where she is pursuing a Master’s in Public Administration to accompany her Masters of Business Administration and her Masters in Psychology. Kirstie served as a door gunner and CH- 53 Helicopter Mechanic in the US Marine Corps. When her aircraft crashed during combat operations in Afghanistan 2012 she was critically injured. In addition to the left leg amputation, she sustained full thickness facial trauma, spinal injuries, a traumatic brain injury, and shoulder injuries. After recovery, Kirstie became dedicated to exceeding expectations. She works as a stuntwoman in major motion pictures, a veterans’ advocate, and as an adaptive extreme athlete. In an effort to repurpose herself to continue serving people as she did in the military, Kirstie established the Kirstie Ennis Foundation to provide education and opportunity in the outdoors and to support other non-profits dedicated to improving the quality of life of individuals and families. She is also a spokesperson for the nonprofit organization Building Homes for Heroes, which provides adapted mortgage-free homes to critically injured veterans. She also sits on the board of non-profits Merging Vets and Players and Glam4Good. Kirstie adopted extreme sports as a way to inspire men, women, and children, with or without adversity to use more of their potential. In order to raise awareness and fundraise, she has sought out to break several world records -- the first being to summit the highest peak on each of the seven continents and the North and South Poles (also known as the grand slam of mountains). Kirstie’s passions for engaging women, veterans, and disabled populations in outdoor recreation and rehabilitation make her an excellent addition to any team.
