Greetings From Our New Manager

As I start my new adventure as the Club Manager of WSC, I reminisce about my first sailing experience – summer camp at Lake Tahoe. I had never been in a sailboat before, and I instantly felt a connection to the wind and water. A few years later, I took sailing lessons in high school, learning to master a small Laser. It wasn’t until I moved to Portland, however, that I really recognized and appreciated my passion: I volunteered at the Island Sailing Club; raced on the Columbia River on a 29 ft. Ericson and became a “master of the wind,” learning to adjust the spinnaker accordingly; and eventually owned & raced a San Juan 24. I am excited to finally follow my passion professionally.
 
I’m eager to bring my entrepreneurial mind-set to WSC, having developed sales and marketing strategies, managed large technology projects and teams, and helped small organizations balance budgets to successfully move forward in their mission. I look forward to getting to know as many of you as possible over the next several months, as we move into another sailing season and plenty of opportunities for socializing later in the summer.
 
In my spare time, I am an endurance cyclist and anticipate riding to the club as often as possible! Additionally, I have sung Soprano with several choral organizations, travel as an amateur photographer with a passion for subjects of historic & cultural significance, backpack/snowshoe/hike anywhere there are mountains, grow Heirloom Cherokee tomatoes and lemon cucumbers in my garden, and attempt to train my somewhat willful Standard Schnauzer, Sydney, and her little brother, Emmett.
