Kathy Mitchell is a Pacific Northwest native and has always had a deep love for our rivers, lakes and ocean. Happiest by the water, she started paddling sea kayaks as a hobby that over time has transformed into a complete paddlesports obsession. You could find her anywhere from the Willamette Narrows to enjoying Cascade Head to the San Juan Islands. She holds her BC Coach Level 1 certification, BC 3 Star in sea kayak, is working towards her 3 star in open canoe and is also a BC Sea Leader aspirant. Having taken BC Coach Level 2 training at Glenmore Lodge, Scotland, in the early summer of 2017, she is looking forward to ‘enabling’ others to share the fun of all things paddling.
