Becky hails from Virginia, where she grew up with parents in the boating industry and spent most of her childhood sailing. She went on to college sailing at CNN and received her Level 3 US Sailing License. After working an office-styled job, she missed being around the water and had to return. She first heard of Oakcliff through a US Sailing Leadership Forum and was blown away by the opportunities Oakcliff was providing sailing enthusiasts. She decided when the timing was right, she would leave her job and reach out to Dawn with the hopes of becoming a part of our organization. In the interim, she served as the board president of Green Bay Sail and Paddle (GBSP), and was instrumental to their growth. She helped take their programs to the next level by developing new programming, such as STEM based programming and cruising, expanding an already popular BSA Scout program, and growing a solid staff of trained instructors and volunteers to provide the best possible learning environment. She’s done great things at GBSP, and has used these skills to do great things for Oakcliff.
