Phoebe Owen
Alumni - Volunteer

Phoebe went on her first Sea School trip, a 10-day sailing expedition, when she was 16. She came back for a 7-day the next summer, then spent the following year in Australia traveling and working as a deckhand on a tall ship, but it wasn't nearly as good as living on Dorothea, so she returned to Nova Scotia and spent the summer doing another 7-day trip and then sailing as Leading Crew on a 21-day and another 10-day. Phoebe worked as the Enrollment Coordinator from 2007-2011, and will continue to be an enthusiastic volunteer.
