Katy grew up in Marblehead, Massachusetts and Bert is originally from Pampa, Texas (ironically both 1 of 4 kids) but owns a charter boat business in St. Thomas, USVI. Shortly after Katy graduated college, sick and tired of plowing snow off the docks and unsure what career path to follow, she decided to move to St. Thomas to work in the charter yacht industry. During hurricane season when they haul the yachts out of the water, Katy had some time off and was looking for work. Well it doesn’t take long on a 13-mile long island with a small boating community to find boat work. As luck would have it, she went to work for Bert on one of his day charter boats he’s been running since 1999. The rest as they say, “is history.” In October it will be 7 years together.
