Krysta Higuchi

Events & Public Relations Coordinator

Krysta Higuchi has always been drawn to the ocean and it’s creatures. After moving from Colorado to California, she was immediately attracted to the vision and mission of the Pacific Marine Mammal Center. She began as an animal care volunteer in 2009 and moved to the roll of rescue coordinator in 2015 to help with the influx of sea lion patients during PMMC’s unusual mortality event (UME).

After graduating in 2017 from California State University, Fullerton with a Bachelors in Communications, Public Relations, Krysta transitioned to her current role as Events and Public Relations Coordinator, combining her knowledge and passion for marine life into a career.
