Experience / Qualifications: Caitie has always had an unexplainable love for the ocean. Some of her favorite memories are bass fishing with her dad and hitting the open ocean on her grandfather's fishing boat. She never truly understood the meaning of this passion until she moved to the US Virgin Islands in 2014 after obtaining her B.S. in Biology from East Carolina University.
A year later she found herself living in South Africa, cage diving with Great White sharks and free diving the reef systems off the Mozambique coastline. During this time, she realized that the ocean was where she was meant to be, so she obtained her STCW 95 certification to work as crew aboard yachts and returned to the U.S. Virgin Islands. She joined Stephen and three other crew to assist in the delivery of a catamaran sailing from Tortola to Trinidad. After spending the next several years working for several different USVI charter companies, Caitie earned her USCG Master Captain License, and then attended Ashburton School of Culinary in England.
Working in the service industry since she was old enough to hold a job, Caitie has learned all about the importance of creating memorable experiences for guests. She believes it is always about the little things, and that is what she and Stephen try to capture in every unique charter.
The cuisine aboard Ghost is designed with adventure in mind. Sea-to-table is one of Caitie and Stephen's specialties and they love to get their guests in on the action! She delights in creating flavorful, delicious meals that are not only fresh, healthy and beautiful, but catered perfectly to your dietary preferences.
