Yacht Documents Manager
Whitney was born in Boston, Massachusetts and went to school at the University of New Hampshire graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology with a minor in Business Administration. After graduation, she moved to San Francisco where she began a career in Advertising Sales and exploring the west coast for 5 years.
Craving more adventure, she moved back east and set her sights on the Big Apple but decided to take the summer to be close to family in Newport, RI. That fate-filled decision led her into yachting and her first position with the renowned yacht broker, Mark Elliott at International Yacht Collection. Working with Mark for 2.5 years, she would spend the summers in Newport, RI and the winters in St. Maarten with the off seasons in Fort Lauderdale. It was in St. Maarten where she met her captain husband and decided to set roots in Fort Lauderdale. In January 2007 she joined Graeme Lord in Yacht Management as Fleet Coordinator at International Yacht Collection.
Whitney has developed her position into the Yacht Documents Manager here at Fairport and has built close relationships with the Flag States. Her focus is organizing and monitoring the Yacht’s Documents along with crew documents and qualifications.
Instrumental in the development of the SeaKeepers Professionals, the on-shore professional division of the International SeaKeepers Society, she also gives back to local charities by initiating toy drives around the holidays and food drives throughout the year.
Whitney’s adventures and wanderlust now include Jean and their two young boys, Cole and Ryder. Together they enjoy days at the beach, vacations in the Rocky Mountains or swimming in the cool lakes of New Hampshire.
