More about Andreea

First Strokes

My cross-country ski coach told me that I should paddle over the summer to stay in shape in the off-season. I did one summer camp at Cascade and was completely hooked on paddling, and when I joined the team, I refused to kayak so I became a canoeist!

Off the Water

I coach at Seattle Canoe and Kayak Club. I just graduated from the University of Washington with a bachelor’s degree in computer science, so now I’m looking for a job where I can use my education while still balancing training!
