I joined DCDBC via the Out of Sight Dragons in 2018. I had watched a dragon boat from a bridge over the Anacostia River and thought it looked fun.

Daphne Pavlis
Board Member

I started paddling back in 2008 in San Francisco, and paddled for almost 10 years! This was a great way to meet people and have made lifelong friends from all over. After a 3 year hiatus, I joined DCDBC based out of the DC Wharf. I love to travel, whether with the team or on my own. In my free time, I can be found at the gym or in the kitchen baking.

Jen joined DCDBC in 2016, loving the opportunity to be out on the water in her hometown. She has come to love both the sport and the inclusive nature of this team. When not paddling, she is exploring Mars or Titan as a NASA planetary scientist, and chasing her (very fast) preschool aged daughter.
