Growing up along the coast of Cape Cod, Massachusetts I always had a passion for been on, in, and around water. Bodysurfing, sailing, swimming, whatever it was I could spend all day doing it! When I was in middle school I put some of that energy into competitive long distance running and soon found another way to express myself when I couldn’t be near the beach. I continued running through high school and through my time at Colorado College in Colorado Springs. In 2011 I discovered paddling; a perfect combination of my two passions, being on the water and endurance athletics. Looking for any opportunity to be able to paddle, train, and commit myself to a full racing schedule I moved to Jupiter, Florida and joined the crew at Blueline Surf and Paddle. I love training, I love paddling, and I’m constantly striving to go a little bit faster with a little less effort!
