Although I lived landlocked for a large majority of my life and grew up as a pool swimmer, the ocean was always calling my name and I could not stay away. After swimming at Rice University, I needed a new sport to fuel my competitive nature. Having family in San Diego, I made the small beach town of Coronado my home and started lifeguarding. It was here where I fell in love with paddling as many of my coworkers were heavily involved in the sport. I started my journey as a prone paddler and have raced competitively for nearly 5 years now. My most rewarding athletic experiences thus far have been winning the 32 mile crossings of the Ka'iwi Channel in the Molokai 2 Oahu Paddleboard World Championships and the Catalina Channel in the Catalina Classic Paddleboard Race. I also will never forget the experience with Team USA winning the team GOLD in the 2015 ISA World SUP and Paddleboard Championships.
