Tell us a little more about yourself!

My passion is in water sports and outdoor education! I really enjoy taking people down runs for their first time and helping people learning how to style it while on whitewater, lakes in the ocean, on the mountain or at the crag. I have been doing a wide variety of Kayaking, Stand Up Paddle Boarding and Canoe classes for Next Adventure since 2012. I also split my time in the summer between Otter Bar Kayaking School and Next Adventure. I'm ACA level 5 Whitewater Kayaking Instructor Certified, ACA Level 3 Whitewater Stand Up Paddle Board Instructor Certified, ACA Level 3 Coastal Kayaking Instructor Certified, BCU Coach Level 1 and a Wilderness First Responder.
