Primary Sport Riverboarding: River running, waterfall drops, surfing, play trips.

Proudest Moment Dropping my first waterfall on my riverboard. Tawhia Falls in New Zealand- 22.5 feet.  

Dreams and Aspirations Continue to travel around the world and experience rivers from each continent. I aspire to spend as much time on the river/water as I do at my day job. Soon enough-one can only hope!! J

Career Highlights. Being inducted into the World Riverboarding Association Hall of Fame, for the record in Womens Waterfall Descent- tallest waterfall descent completed by a woman riverboarder (22.5 feet/ 6.8 meters). 1st Place 2016 Maine Whitewater Championships, WW SUP Division. Running class 5 rivers on my river board. I hope to continue to inspiring more women to experience the sport of riverboarding.

A bit about me I am 27 years old and have lived in Maine my whole life. My Masters degree is in Occupational Therapy and I am currently the Assistant Site Director for 2 Special Purpose Private Day Treatment Schools for students with behavioral needs and all forms of autism. I am a Tumbling instructor at our local dance studio, as well as teach private tumbling lessons after hours throughout the week. Although I am passionate about the work that I do, I am a strong believer that it is important to have a balance between work and personal life which in turn, allows you to be more mentally/ emotionally/ physically present in whatever it is that you are doing at any given time. I am on the river every free chance I get; before work, after work, on the weekends, and on my days off. I got my start on the West Branch of the Penobscot River and that river will always hold a special place in my heart.
