Raised in Charleston, SC Mindy naturally loves the ocean, the preservation of historic architecture, different food cuisines and is an environmental steward for protecting ecosystems. After five years working in hospitality and tourism management on the beautiful Kiawah and Seabrook islands, she decided to enhance her education and attended the College of Charleston. Mindy graduated in 2015 with a Bachelor of science in Biology, focusing on environmental stewardship, marine biodiversity, and fish biology. Mindy worked as a lab researcher for a few years, but always caught herself staring out at the Charleston harbor dreaming of seeing the things she studied in school. She bought a sailboat and taught herself how to sail a 32’ Endeavor monohull. Mindy had to learn from the ground up, from scraping the hull, replacing oil, water impellers to navigating the waterways sailing wing on wing. Mindy is always reaching out to learn new things! She is an adventurous explorer, not surprisingly, she quit her job in Charleston and found her niche as a chef and first mate in the Bahamas, Key West, and Virgin Islands. Mindy is a natural on yachts, serving cocktails and cooking meals for those on the ultimate vacation. Mindy brings her own flare of Charleston cuisine to the islands with her signature low country dishes that leave you feeling you are at home. With her passion for food, people and marine life, Mindy has found her place in paradise. Mindy holds a USCG Merchant Mariners credential with STCW endorsement. She is currently working towards her Captains licenses. Jason and Mindy met as friends while living aboard their sailboats in Charleston. Undoubtedly, their shared interests and love for the water brought them together. Today they are living life to the fullest in the beautiful Virgin Islands. Together this fun-loving couple with their Southern hospitality and charm will have you enjoying your vacation, with unforgettable memories!
