Other Stuff

Role Models, Heroes & Heroines: Everyone in my life is a role model for me. I try and learn something from everyone I come in contact with (corny again… I know)
When not paddling most likely to be found: Working… Visiting my family (who are all living too far away.)
Three people you’d like to invite to dinner:
My Grandma… she was a wise woman, and I’d like to get her advice on life right now! And anyone that has had experiences I can learn from.
Superstitions (Paddling or Otherwise): Stretch my glutes before getting in a boat (scared I might not be able to stand up when I get out again)
