Kate Goushy

Head Instructor, Program Director


I am excited to return to AHSEP in my new role as Program Director.

My team and I can't wait to meet you and get everyone safely out on the water sailing and having fun!

I have been an AHSEP volunteer for many years, and my college-aged kids learned to sail through the program.

My love of sailing has been lifelong. I love to crew big boats and single-hand sail my dinghies all year—even in the winter!

I like to run, cycle, snowboard, and ride horses when not on the water.
