At the same time as signing up to sail across the Atlantic Ocean in 2014, Jen was also in the process of moving back to Canada from the UK to begin a dream - Windmill Lake Wake & Eco Park (WLW).

Just as she crossed an Ocean having never sailed before, Jen set up an outdoor recreation park focused around cable wakeboarding - having never wakeboarded before (are you sensing a theme?)


Windmill Lake was started by Jen (the paddler) and Andy (the wakeboarder) in 2014 and has now finished 5 successful seasons introducing over 10,000 people to a range of watersports that are environmentally-responsible.


Since starting WLW, Jen has become a certified World Paddle Association Instructor, Level 1 & 2 PaddleFit Instructor, Water Ski Wakeboard Canada Wakeboard Instructor & in 2019 will become a Coach Developer & SkiAbility Coach - making it possible for people with disabilities to access watersports.
