I like to think of myself as an ‘early adopter’ when it comes to stand up paddling and the sport has been a big part of both my personal and professional fitness practice and global explorations since 2008. I suppose my biggest contribution to SUP was being the first person to navigate the red tape and be issued a Special Recreation Permit to teach SUP by the U.S. National Park Service, paving the way for others to operate commercially on public lands. I’m back in my home state of Utah after a few stints of living on both the East and West Coasts of the U.S., where I work in the outdoor and fitness industries and can hike, bike, and stand up paddle my way through Utah’s spectacular outdoor playgrounds.

Sol has been my method of bridging the gap between fitness and the outdoors and helping others reconnect to nature since 2004. Recently I’ve shifted my emphasis from guiding customized outdoor fitness retreats to sharing what I’ve learned to help other fitness pros, organizations, and communities develop their own retreats and improve the health & wellness of their clients and citizens.

INTERESTING FACTS

I’m a former wildlife biologist and have a secret love of insects, particularly shiny metallic beetles. When I was 16 years old I was the National 4-H winner for my insect collection and took my first plane ride to Chicago. Many years later I was in insect heaven while working on the entomology archives at the Smithsonian Institution National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C.

THE FUTURE

I’m working on my first book to educate and empower fitness trainers and yoga instructors everywhere to lead their own outdoor fitness retreats and help our communities live happier, healthier lives. Watch for the book to be released in Summer, 2018!

FAVORITE PADDLING LOCATIONS

FLATWATER – Great Salt Lake State Park – UTAH

My favorite places to paddle are the same one’s she used to call home – out of Lone Rock at Lake Powell on the Utah / Arizona border and Butterfly Beach in Montecito, California. You can find me at Rainbow Bay on Deer Creek Reservoir or paddling out of Great Salt Lake Marina on a calm day when I'm home in Utah

FLATWATER – RAINBOW BAY – UTAH

Beautiful spot that I never get tired of being at.

COAST – BUTTERFLY BEACH – CALIFORNIA

One of my favorite beaches that is amazing for paddling.
