Sabrina Simon

Caver & Graphic Designer in Huntsville United States

Sabrina Simón was formally trained in graphic design at Flagler College in St. Augustine, FL where she earned a B.A. in 2000 and went on to work in the graphic design field for 10+ years. Upon moving to Huntsville, Alabama, her discovery and love of caving led her to delve into vertical rope work, photography, surveying and eventually cave mapping. With these skills, Sabrina teamed up with a National Geographic Explorer for several field seasons and mapped 12+ caves deep in the Yucatan Peninsula, all heavily strewn with Maya artifacts. She then spent 5 years as an archaeological field photographer, lab technician, illustrator, and graphic designer for a cultural resource management archaeology firm in Huntsville. As a hobby, Sabrina owns and operates a 2000lb, 100 year-old Chandler and Price letterpress and also had a small cottage food business- "Crazy Bakey Things" with a friend for 2 years. Currently she spends half her official time raising her 2 year old daughter and the other half as swim instructor at the YMCA.

Above ground Sabrina is an active member of the National Speleological Society, the Huntsville Grotto, and Huntsville Cave Rescue Unit. She is the treasurer for the North East Huntsville Civic Association, volunteering her time for a variety of community-based activities. Underground, Sabrina is a TAG (Tennessee, Alabama & Georgia) caver of 15+ years of exploring, photographing, surveying and mapping. She counts herself very lucky to have taken souvenirs in photo form from 100’s of caves, to have seen the beauty of Lechuguilla in person, to have held a world record for rope climbing if only for a single day, and to have mapped and sketched the caves of the Maya deep in the Yucatan peninsula.
