Born in New England and raised in an active family, Gwen became a water sports enthusiast early in life. Surprisingly she was not introduced to sailing until she spent a semester in the Caribbean aboard Seamester’s S/Y Ocean Star in 2013. After a life-changing experience with Seamester, Gwen joined the ActionQuest/GoBeyond team as a Wilderness First Responder in 2014. Since then, Gwen has earned her Master of Yachts 200ton certificate, and she returns for her seventh summer in the BVI after a few years away as a skipper. When she is not in the BVI, Gwen lives in Vermont, where she works as a teacher, coach, and administrator at a winter sports academy.
