Women Surfers Pacific Northwest Event + Panel,  (2018)

This was the Sea Together: ISSUE 001 launch party event that I organized with Leeward Surf in Portland. I organized and facilitated a panel discussion on women’s surfing featuring surfers from the Pacific Northwest: Dr. Meade Krosby,  Olivia Schroeder and daughter, Lydnsey of Leeward Surf, and Leslie Palotas. We also had a special guest bongo band Lighting that came out from the Oregon Coast. I met them on the side of the road and invited them to come be apart of our event. We had a large drawing board for the community to draw on. The surf community really said they felt the intimacy of this surf event and I cried in public for the first time.
