As a 30-year Military Veteran, I have tremendous experience with planning and executing missions safely and effectively. Your exceptional private charter experience with us is my mission!

I love serving people and I’ve been boating and sailing for 40 years. I hold a United States Coast Guard 100 Ton Masters Captain’s Credential with Sailing and Towing Endorsements. I am a NauticEd Sailing Instructor and a PADI Divemaster. I have extensive experience with this vessel in Atlantic and Gulf Coast waters as well as the Florida Keys and the Bahamas.

As your Captain, I will ensure the comfort, confidence, and safety of all aboard Take Me There with a wink and a smile so that you can focus on You!

As your Sailing Instructor, I team with NauticEd to provide you a high-quality sailing instruction experience meeting both USCG and international standards - including access to NauticEd’s comprehensive online training & resources.

Your Concierge

The best word to describe me is “eclectic”. I can’t get enough of learning new things, finding the next big adventure, and engaging with people. I strive to make you feel comfortable from the first conversation, to the first time you step aboard, until the moment we say, ":Until next time."

I have done many things in my life. I have my Ph.D. in Organizational Leadership and was president of a leadership consulting firm for 20 years. I am also an end-of-life doula who accompanies people during their dying process and believes that every moment is precious. I am a licensed Florida wedding officiant and I am also an RYT200 yoga instructor. My passion is connecting with you and helping you to flourish!

And now I am the Chief Experience Officer aboard Take Me There as well as your concierge and head chef. I get to use all my talents and passions during our honeymoons and elopements, yoga retreats, friends outings, private escapes, leadership explorations, scattering of ashes, and family gatherings. Whatever the reason for booking a charter, we will ensure that we exceed your expectations.

Life is all about the experience- and we want you to enjoy exceptional experiences. So come aboard and let us pamper you- because you deserve exceptional. Just say, “Take Me There”!

Our History

More About Who We are

Take Me There Sailing LLC is the result of a dream.

After living aboard Take Me There for five years and exploring the US and Caribbean waters, we moved to a land home. As much as we love our home in Florida, we felt unsettled about leaving our adventures.

Sailing aboard Take Me There is different than cruising.  We’ve been on the big cruise ships. Although nice in their own way, they lack the intimacy, privacy, and personality of sailing. We felt more like numbers instead of humans.  Take Me There is more than a boat; it is a beautiful vintage vessel that holds your dreams and creates a space for excitement, harmony, and discovery. Come aboard and find joy in the journey!

Take Me There Sailing, LLC is our invitation for you to wander, explore, and realize your dreams- because you deserve exceptional.

We looked deeply at the sailing charter industry and the service models offered in Florida’s Gulf Coast area, but could not find anyone operating a sailing charter business that offered something affordable and exceptional… so we decided to fill that void. And here we are – ready to plan your next big adventure with you.

We offer you a bit of our dream in the form of a personalized, concierge, gourmet sailing and luxury yachting charter service focused on providing you exceptional service and an amazing vacation that you will always remember. Life’s special moments deserve to be celebrated – a marriage proposal, the announcement of a baby, honeymoon, anniversary, family gathering, elopement, private retreat, friends get-together, or the fulfillment of a bucket list item. Whatever the occasion, come let us take you there- because you deserve exceptional!
