Tell us a little bit about yourself

I have always been an avid adventurer. It wasn't until I found SUP that I learned I could transform my life through these adventures. I have spent my adult years curating a lifestyle that aligns with my passions. Providing me with the ultimate freedom to create with my hands and work on the move. Whitewater SUP has taught me how to flow through life with grace, to think on my feet, and how humbling perseverance is both on and off the river. I am grateful for every movement I spend on the water. For the opportunity to paddle amongst vibrant, inspiring athletes and for a sport that brings a smile to my face. If there’s anything we need more of in this lifetime, it's play.
