Teaching.

Growing up on the lake. We always wanted to have people to share our time on the water. But growing up in a small town. Not many people had the same experiences. In order to get people out on the water. We ended up teaching them how to wakeboard. Becoming teachers before we could drive cars.

And it quickly grew into something more.

Having the guidance of my Dad. Who was my hockey coach. And also my early wakeboard coach. Even helping me land my first flip.

I was inspired to share my passion with others.

As I stumbled upon paddleboarding. Teaching slowly fell into place. Now with so many people excited to get out on the water. The opportunity to share my passion of the water and teaching. Has become a major part of my life.

I have found myself standing in the front of the class. Sharing my love for stand up paddleboard yoga. Through classes at Festivals like Wanderlust and regional events throughout the country. I also enjoy teaching learn to paddle classes. Paddle technique clinics. And skills clinics. Throughout the year these classes occur all over North America. Some in conjunction with races and events. Others are stand alone events.
