When did you first get involved with Salt Life? I was welcomed onto Team Salt Life in February of 2021.
What is your favorite hobby when you’re not living the Salt Life? I am so blessed to have a career that allows me to be active and in the water every day. When I’m not in the pool, I enjoy working out (on land :)), relaxing on the beach, exploring via SUP, and freediving whenever I have the opportunity....
What is your favorite tropical destination? Bimini, Bahamas. I love the laid back lifestyle of the islands and you can’t beat the views! The water is incredible to snorkel and dive, and there are always ocean critters to see. Such a beautiful place full of kind people and amazing adventure.
How would you spend you dream day? Easy! My dream day would be spent in/on the water, exploring with all the people I love. Catching fish, freediving, and enjoying the sun. We would end the day snuggled up by a bonfire, enjoying an ocean breeze, and cooking the fish we caught. There would be a killer playlist and lots of fruit to eat! My hair would be matted from the salt and we would all be sunkissed-happiest by the sea! Who’s coming?!
