Hometown: Originally from Chesapeake, Virginia. Lived in DC for about 8 years before making my way to Mt. Pleasant.
Motivation to join Surfrider: I have been involved in Surfrider for about 2 years. After moving to the area, I was looking for opportunities to meet awesome people while also connecting with and making a positive impact on my local environment. I have always loved the water (when I was a kid I told my mom I wanted to be a fish when I grew up) so I was particularly drawn to Surfrider after participating in a beach cleanup event.
Day Job: During the day, I am a Senior Manager of Operations for a consulting company, managing our talent development and employee engagement programs.
Hobbies: In my spare time, you can find me by the water paddleboarding, boating, scuba diving, or hanging at the beach with my husband and dog. I also enjoy traveling and bouldering at the local rock gym.
Favorite thing about the Lowcountry: I love the beautiful waterways, wildlife and sunsets and of course the welcoming community!
