I hope I can help you too.
My experience boating started growing up on the Illinois River.
All of my best childhood memories are of being on the water with family and friends.
I spent one unforgettable summer while at uni in Scotland working on a gulet based out of Marmaris,Turkey.
A hundred years later, at the age of 36, I started to learn to sail with The Mountaineers Club in Seattle (of all places!)
Shortly after that I became the program coordinator for the non-profit organization Sailing Heritage Society, which offers free therapeutic sails to children and families from Seattle Children's Hospital, Fred Hutch, Ronald McDonald House, Make a Wish Foundation and many others along with families living in domestic abuse shelters and at-risk youth. One of the best perks was definitely getting to crew on the 65' schooner Mallory Todd several times a week and seeing the excitement of the families, many sailing for the first time!
Since the beginning my career with POP, I have helped sellers sell and buyers make purchases in almost every state in the US as well as Australia, Puerto Rico, Jamaica, Italy, Moldova, Canada, Thailand, Saudi Arabia, Algeria, England and Mexico.
Please just let me know how I can help.
