Kirsten Korosec

Active.com Editor

Kirsten loves any activity that combines adventure, the outdoors and a little competition. She grew up playing tennis in Tucson, Arizona, where her family owns and operates a tennis and fitness facility. She now regularly participates in women's adult and mixed doubles USTA leagues. Her adult team won the Southwest Sectionals Championship in August 2012 and is headed to Nationals in October.
But tennis isn't her only love. Kirsten's an avid hiker, rock climber and trail runner and when she's not working she can be found in the mountains surrounding Tucson, or further afield in Colorado, the Pacific Northwest or Europe.
