I’m a writer by trade and a boater by passion. I’ve been whitewater paddling for five years now, and this love of the sport has enabled me to experiencs pretty wild and scenic rivers around the United States and a few places in the world including France, Costa Rica, and Mexico.
I started back in college as a kayaker and switched over to whitewater canoeing in graduate school. When common sense probably should have prevailed, passion encouraged me to take the online editor job with Canoe & Kayak magazine. I’m pretty happy with that decision, the connections I made, and the experience I got both as a writer and as a paddler.
I am part of a group of female whitewater canoeists called the Boof Sisters.
I also boat specifically for the canoe company Blackfly Canoes and write posts of my happenings for its website.
