Kellee Edwards

Series: "Mysterious Islands"

Hometown:  Chicago, Ill.

Kellee Edwards is an avid adventure video blogger for her website Kellee Set Go! Traveling by land, air and sea, Edwards uses her experience as a pilot, scuba diver and explorer to see the world from different heights, literally. Being a pilot only ups the adventure quota, allowing Edwards to fly to the remote locations, landing without the benefit of a runway or air traffic tower.

Edwards’ extensive travels have taken her a long way from where she spent her early childhood – on Chicago’s South Side – and where she was raised in San Bernardino, CA. Her love of travel and outdoor adventure has propelled her to explore more than 40 countries. Her exploits include summiting Mt. Hood in Oregon, dog sledding in the remote wilderness of Alaska, trekking the active volcano Mt. Pacaya in Guatemala, repelling into cenotes in Mexico, cliff jumping in Curacao and exploring Mayan ruins in Central America. She even had a life-changing close call on a shipwreck dive in the Red Sea near Eilat, Israel.

Edwards holds a BA in Communications from California State University Fullerton with an emphasis in journalism. In addition to video blogging about her outdoor escapades around the globe, she has worked on-air as a travel and adventure expert for FOX 5 San Diego, and as a contributing editor and writer for Pilot Getaways Magazine.

Edwards currently resides in Los Angeles and can often be found enjoying her favorite pastimes -- hiking or flying around in a Cessna 172 in search of her next adventure.
