In the Kirsch household, we were never idle. If we weren’t completing our rigorous rounds of chores, like feeding the animals, milking the goats, sweeping the floors, and folding laundry, the six of us Kirsch kids were encouraged heavily to be outside. We would ski, mountain bike, and hike as a family. I remember one summer the whole family sailed around Hawaii...and then my parents allowed my younger brother John, aka Aventura’s President and CEO, to sail the boat back to San Francisco by himself at just 14 years old.
This philosophy acts as groundwork for Aventura, as does our father's drive to be honest, ethical, and hardworking. They've both been able to make a difference in my life and the lives of my 5 siblings, which we hope to carry on through Aventura.
