YOURS TRULY

My life has always revolved around being active, healthy, fit and into many sports.  I started surfing when I was 19 years old on a longboard and haven't stopped since.  Living in Florida it can often be flat, so I caved into the SUP world in late 2013 and have been SUP surfing and racing.  I have had some amazing experiences around the world, inculding competing in the Molokai to Oahu, world championship SUP race, a 32 mile channel crossing in Hawaii, and an experience I will never forget.

 

June 27, 2018 I set a world record, being the first female to standup paddleboard 115 miles fro Cuba to Key West.

 

Participating in surfing and SUP is not only my personal passion but I also love spreading the aloha.  I host, alongside Roray Kam, one of the east coasts biggest SUP races, The RK Sunshine SUP Series and am one of the head coaches for the Broward County Special Olympics SUP team.

I have been a member of the Broward County Surfrider Foundation Chapter since the beginning of the chapter, one of the original start up crew of Surfers for Autism, a member of South Florida Longboard Association and the second girl in 50 years to be nominated into the Greenback Surf Club. 

 

I hold a PhD in Health and Human Performance and am a certified sports nutritionist (CISSN) and also lead a sup fitness group, as well as instruct private lessons and clinics in SUP, SUP surfing and regular surfing.  I have developed land based training and nutrition programs to assist in everything from getting stronger as an athlete, paddleboarder or just an all around healthy lifestyle.

 

 

The ocean is my life and I'd love to share the stoke with you!

Aloha!
