Tell us a little bit about yourself

I spend most of my free time at The White Water Center in Charlotte, NC. This playground is the perfect spot to hone in and strengthen paddling skills. I’ve dedicated this year to exploring new rivers with the intention of pushing my comfort zone and making the most of life. The community, which feels more like family, is one of my favorite parts of white water SUP. Being on the river, working as a team, strengthens and transforms you to be the best version of yourself. I’m excited to share the love and help grown the white water community.
