"I grew up in Santa Barbara, California. My dad would occasionally take me out to surf at Rincon when I was younger. I have surfed on and off throughout my life while growing up. I was also on the swim team from the time I was ten. I have worked as a lifeguard and swim instructor. Last summer, I worked at the UCSB Surf and Kayak Camp at Campus Point, and loved it. Teaching people how to surf is such a fun and rewarding job, and I cannot get enough of it!"
