Cha-ling O'Connell - Membership and Sales Manager
Cha grew up sailing, racing, and instructing at Courageous before heading off to M.I.T., where she majored in Comparative Media Studies and sailed for the Engineers as captain of the Women's Sailing Team. For the past several years, first as an assistant program director and then as our Director of Adult Programs, Cha has been instrumental to the success of the Courageous adult program. While fostering an active and open environment for a growing community, she has also improved the training and management of staff and instructors, and refined the many scheduling and database systems that support our programs. This season, Cha's role as Membership and Sales Manager will mark her last season as one of our core staff, but she looks forward to being a part of the Courageous community for years to come!
