Serving in the Us Army has trained me, prepared me and pushed me, beyond what I thought I was capable of.
Basic training was all about being on-time, if not early, following orders, dress-right dress, maintaining a professional appearance and of course- hospital corners on your bed with a cover so tight you could bounce a quarter off of it..
As a satellite technician in the Signal Corps at Fort Gordon, GA, my unit trained all lieutenants to operate and maintain equipment vital for combat communication. We tested new systems, collected necessary data and conveyed it clearly to the end user, the US government. Calculating the direction and orientation of the satellites requires detailed measurements and the ability to translate that information into quantifiable results.
Being chosen for Ceremonial Detachment was my highest honor.

This is the attention to detail Yacht Punch List brings to your job.
Thanks to my service, I had the opportunity to receive a Bachelors of Science in Psychology & Sociology from UMass Dartmouth as well as a Bachelors of Arts in Interior Design from the Art Institute. Awarded for the top portfolio of my graduating class. Interning at a library for a 70k sf showroom gave me a deeper education about the top brands in interior design. This is combined with now years of these vendor relationships.
I grew up a seamstresses daughter under her mother's cutting room table, A childhood of fabric, humming machines and a sewing scar gives me first-hand knowledge of how to sew the designs I come up with.
Learning to sail at the age of 8 in Hyannis, MA allowed me to earn a scholarship to the Hyannis Yacht Club at 13.
Racing 420's in high school was fun but Figawi on Nantucket was where the real sailing was.
I learned a few valuable lessons that first summer"
"Sailing is like flying and sleeping on a boat is like being rocked by mother nature"
