    #64-Kelly Marie Henry-Finding Flow in Life

    #64-Kelly Marie Henry-Finding Flow in Life

    I am joined today by Kelly Marie Henry. Kelly was a referral from Laura Zulliger from episode 61 and Laura’s partner in the Fearless Formosa expedition.

    Kelly’s story is also one of adventure but in a different way. In this episode, Kelly shares the discoveries she has made through paddling that prompted her to pursue kayaking as a profession and move halfway around the globe to do it. She’s got quite a unique background, so I will let you hear it directly from Kelly.

    Enjoy today’s episode with Kelly Marie Henry!

    Welcome to Paddling the Blue!

    Today’s episode features Russell Henry.

    You’ll recognize the last name if you’ve listened to his father, Brian Henry from episode 54 . Russell and his brother Graham completed an incredible paddle from Brazil to Florida. This was a great adventure and a super fun story. Russell is a great story teller. I laughed all the way along with Russell on this one, so have fun with this episode.
