When did you start sailing? Why?
I grew up sailing with my family. I didn't really have a choice, we all just went sailing. Then, later on as an adult, I realized that it was a unique skill with a cool culture. I started to pursue the sport with more fervor.
You're from the area. What made you want to move back to Annapolis?
I grew up here, I have always liked it. After living in so many diverse sailing communities, I wanted to be in a place where I identify with the local culture and can continue to enjoy the lifestyle.
Is Annapolis your favorite place to sail?
I really like the BVI for a regatta venue. Locally, I prefer the Eastern Shore.
What is your favorite thing about working at APS?
I get to see all the great gear that comes through the department. We ship some cool stuff! I also really like spending my days surrounded by other sailors.
Do you have a favorite piece of gear you've seen come through?
Oh yes. The ZhikSkin Super Warm Skiff Suit. It's hard to find a suit out there that's cut so nicely for women.
