Michelle fell in love with whitewater when she first rafted the Shenandoah and Potomac rivers several years ago. She began whitewater kayaking in 2012, and ventured into the world up SUP in 2013. Michelle is an ACA Level II SUP instructor and has a blast instructing Camp SUP for kids.

Michelle enjoys the occasional peaceful paddle on widewater, running the gorge, playing in local surf spots, and paddling rivers like the Gauley and Yough. Last summer, Michelle kayaked the Middle Fork of the Salmon River in Idaho, and looks forward to some more east coast adventures in 2015.
