Kackie joined the AQ team in 2021 as a mate after being an ActionQuest student back in 2016. Inspired by her initial summer with AQ as a student, Kackie took a gap year after high school to earn her RYA Yachtmaster Offshore 200t certification in Sydney, Australia. After spending 4 months in Sydney, Kackie spent the rest of her gap year in South Africa, surfing and backpacking through coastal villages and staying at local hostels. Kackie likes anything that has to do with being in the ocean, whether it’s surfing, sailing, wakeboarding, or just going for a swim. Other than that, Kackie is a currently a student at Georgia Tech, and in her free time she enjoys trying out new recipes, going on long walks, and spending time with her friends.
