After a life-changing experience as a Seamester student aboard S/Y Ocean Star, 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 is returning for her sixth summer in the BVI as a skipper. Gwen’s favorite part of working for AQ is raising sail and heeling over for the first time with a new group of students. She also enjoys spontaneous dish team dance parties, Mountain Point sunsets, and all the great conversations that take place throughout the summer. When she’s not in the BVI, Gwen lives in Vermont where she works at an independent high school and spends time skiing, hiking, and enjoying the outdoors.
