Tortola, BVI

Island Girl Since:


Originally Hails From:

Baltimore, MD (Charm City)

Kaletha was once assigned to write her own obituary by her college professor. Of course she immediately thought, “How morbid!” But then she pondered the adventure of drafting her own fate and seized the opportunity to direct her future. Some of the best stories aren’t about the living, after all – they’re about the departed and how they navigated their way through life!

It was at this point that her vision of living in the Caribbean began to take shape. She discarded her Metrocard, a city of 10 million people, and jaunts with friends through the Village to embark on a journey that would introduce her to “Nature’s Little Secrets” – a union between two souls and nonstop adventure. She traded the subway for a Jeep and a home in the islands where she has fun trekking the mountainous roads, swimming in the vibrant seas, and relaxing along the powder white beaches with her son in the British Virgin Islands.

Through her lens and her pen, she continues to feed her curiosity for art, culture, food, and travel. While she never imagined the obituary assignment would pave the way for her to move here, she’s thankful that it turned out to be one of her most enriching experiences.

You can check out her photography on her personal website.
