Why I’m excited to work for World Ocean School: I had the pleasure of being on board Roseway from a student perspective and absolutely fell in love with sailing and the ocean. I hope I can bring the same passion and excitement that the previous deckhand educators had to help new students grow and have a similar experience to what I had. I'm excited to be a part of such a unique organization and hopefully see tremendous personal growth from the students and myself during my time aboard.
