My Mission. I will train to perform at the absolute best of my ability in competition. I will be someone that others look up to through every success or adversity that faces me. I will smile everyday because life is a gift only given once.
My Team. With the support of friends, family, and sponsors, I know I can succeed in my mission. The Laser Radial may be a single-handed boat but my campaign is far from a solo effort. My support team is the foundation of my success and I would't be in the position I am today with out your help and encouragement. Thank you for being a part of my journey!
