A member of ZLAC since 2003, Chris first started rowing at the Mission Bay Rowing Association and has always been a club rower. Shortly after learning to scull, Chris was invited to sweep row with SD Police Crew, USD women varsity, and then MBRA Competitive Women’s team. She raced for over 25 years, winning gold medals at Women’s, Masters and FISA nationals in all rowing disciplines. Chris has taught rowing for MBAC and SDRC, coached at MBRA, and with UCSD Women’s Crew. She has run many local regattas, served on SDCC and MBRA Boards, and has been a USRA Referee for more than ten years. In 2014, after retiring from finance, she started to coach at ZLAC. She is very excited to be working with a great club and wonderful women.
