The journey of Superyacht Captain Kelly Gordon began in Indiana, and after becoming a Chemistry professor, she accidentally discovered the world of yachting! We are so grateful to have met her this year and started a wonderful friendship with this incredible and inspiring woman! Thank you Captain Kelly for sharing your story with us and taking the time to help us learn more about your amazing path in life so far.
Q. Tell us a little bit about yourself.
A. Great question! I grew up the furthest from anything yachting on a small farm in North Central Indiana. I had always wanted to be a veterinarian since I was 6 years old and I actually got into veterinary school right out of undergraduate school but chose not to go. I then went on to graduate school where I obtained my Master of Science in Chemistry. I have always been an animal lover and of all things nature. Most importantly though, I am super close to my family.
Q. How did you get started in the yachting industry?
A. I got started in the yachting industry by complete accident. After graduate school. . .
