I grew up in the water. The entire first 20 years of my life were spent in a swimming pool training to become the next Janet Evans. I slept, ate, went to school and swam…that’s it. I would hate to say that I got burnt out on swimming, but looking back, I think I really did. After college I took some time off from competitive sports but it didn’t take long for me to find another water sport that I loved! I began to paddle board for leisure, but my competitive spirit led me to racing…there is nothing like crossing the finish line first!
Although I love to paddle, I spend the majority of my time off the water with my husband and kids. I love my family and really enjoy doing things together. We live in Destin, Florida and get to experience great times together on the water just hanging out!
