Sport: Surfing, Snowboarding, Kiteboarding
Hometown: Golden, BC in the winters & Cape Hatteras, NC for the rest
Jessie is happiest when she’s in the ocean or in the mountains with a board under her feet. While at University Jessie was looking for a summer job, and a summer sport to complement her love of snowboarding. So she moved to Cape Hatteras, North Carolina to work at REAL Watersports and learn to kiteboard and to surf. Once Jessie got the hang of kiting she began coaching and has been captivated by the sport and the ocean ever since. Jessie is now the Head Coach at REAL Watersports and spends her summers on the water kiting, surfing, coaching, and volunteering with the Water Rescue Team. She’s a true waterwoman and an inspiration. In the winter Jessie plays in the mountains Ski Patrolling, snowboarding, and volunteering with the local Search and Rescue group. Be it in emergency situations or coaching Jessie loves helping others, and is stoked to share the sports she loves with others.
