While earning her BA in Environmental Studies from UC Santa Barbara, surfing also became a fanatical passion. After college, she turned her voyaging dream into reality, sailing south from Southern California through Central America and the Pacific Islands as captain of her own forty foot sailboat, Swell. For more than a decade, she has kept her nomadic voyaging lifestyle going through writing, blogging, photography, representing conscious brands, and earning recognition as a surf adventurer, environmental activist, and captain. She was featured in the film Dear and Yonder (2009), and nominated for National Geographic Adventurer of the Year in 2015. She spent three years anchored at a small island in the South Pacific while writing, Swell: A Sailing Surfer's Voyage of Awakening.
