I am the President and Founder of the nonprofit organization Diversify Whitewater.

The Mission of Diversify Whitewater (DW) is to promote Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) in paddlesports by removing the barriers that exist for Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC), and Allies in kayaking, canoeing, rafting, stand up paddling (SUP), and other related activities primarily through holding community paddling events.
