At the age of 12, I earned my Power Squadron ABC Card from the Grosse Pointe Power Squadron and that fueled my love for being on any type of water.  Being in the advertising and photography profession, I’ve been able to use my knowledge of Seamanship on assignments worldwide. As the squadron SEO/PRO, I enjoy working with other members to educate the public about boating.
