Wet Planet Rafting Decal

Growing up in Potomac, Maryland, Julianna had access to some great rivers like the Potomac, Shenandoah, and Youghiogheny. These special places served not only as an introduction to the sport, but as a place to progress, hone her skills, and fall in love with kayaking. While enrolling as a full-time student at Indiana University made kayaking a bit more difficult, Julianna loves nothing more than a good challenge. During the summers she would travel, work, and teach kayaking to share her love for the river. 

Last season Julianna worked at Zoar Outdoors in Massachusetts as a full-time instructor. She also paddled some of New England’s best whitewater like the Moose, Dead, and New Haven Ledges.

We are very excited that Julianna is making the pilgrimage to the Columbia River Gorge to teach kayaking at Wet Planet. For Julianna, kayaking is all about finding the flow state and connecting with the surrounding environment. Whitewater has played an important role in her life and she loves spreading that feeling to others through teaching.

Whether it’s teaching or boating with friends, Julianna’s perfect day on the water involves paddling with a great crew of people who enjoy nothing more than laughing and adapting as challenges arise. We are excited to watch Julianna not only join the prominent whitewater community in the Gorge, but to expand that community by sharing her passion with new kayakers.
