SAIL TRAINING MANAGER
My days on the water and sailing started at a very young age in Southern California. I’ve held many different sailing related positions at different yacht clubs around California. Turning my experience and love for sailing into a career has been a great blessing. I am excited to be a part of the SYC family and look forward to continuing the success of the Youth Sailing Program.
