Accomplished surfer, former Ocean Lifeguard, Marine Biologist
Let's go surfing! I am an ocean lover, California native and avid surfer with over 16 years of surfing experience, having surfed spots all over the world: from Puerto Escondido to Mavericks to Teahupo'o to Punta de Lobos to Peahi/Jaws and Nazaré. I've also won "Longest Noseride" in the 2017 Cape Kiwanda Longboard Classic and was the Women's Grand Champ at the 2021 World Bodysurfing Championships in Oceanside California before going on to make the quarterfinals as one of only 2 women participants at Zicatela. As a marine biologist (BS Marine Biology & MS Microbiology), I love to share my love and knowledge about the ocean with others, and do whatever I can to protect my local coastal ecosystems. I'm also a certified Wilderness First Responder (NOLS Dec. 2019) and former California State Beach Lifeguard and Junior Lifeguard Instructor, so safety is always my first priority.
I love encouraging and helping aspiring surfers reach their goals, whatever they may be, or showing new surfers (swimmers aged 6 and up) to ride their first waves!
