It has always been my honor to give back to the sport that has given me so much. My purpose is to support the athletes of today and the next generations. In March of 2021, I accepted the position as head of the US Olympic Sailing Team, with the goal of getting Team USA back on the podium.  While this was my greatest challenge, I am very proud of my Team and what we achieved to date.

Unfortunately, the current Board of US Sailing recently restructured the Olympic Department, including my role as Executive Director. The new structure is not what I signed up for, nor something I am willing to be part of, therefore I resigned February 24th.  I am not a quitter, but I do know when it is time to go.

To those who supported this mission with me, I am forever grateful for your trust and confidence. To our USA athletes, I wish you great success, and know I will always be there for you.
