NYO is excited to announce that @michellemhone is our December Member of the Month! Michelle served as a Women’s Race Coach this year, helping to lead NYO through an exciting race season, including paddling the #napalichallenge in Kauai, pictured here. Fellow paddler and #napalichallenge2018 teammate Carolyne K. says, “Always the mother hen of the group, Michelle’s desire to make everyone feel comfortable, safe in the water, and welcomed is infectious. She pushes us to succeed and do our best, and it shows in how well we performed this year. One of the pillars of NYO, Michelle is a paddling role model that I aspire to be as good as one day.” All month we will be highlighting Michelle’s story, so stay tuned to learn more about our incredible coach!
