USCG Licensed Captain, Masters, 25 GRT
Being the youngest of four children, Evangeline had a lot of guidance when learning how to handle a boat. As time passed and all of the old salts in her life have also, she realized that she is now the one to pass on the knowledge and teach her own children, relatives and friends.
To formalize her maritime training, she obtained her Captain’s License in 2020 and earned a Certificate of Seamanship for the completion of 80 Hour Master 100 Gross Ton course.
She holds a US Merchant Marine Credential, Master of Self-Propelled Vessels of less than 25 Gross Register Ton (GRT). This license is to operate an inspected vessel up to 25 GRT and the number of paying passengers the boat is rated for. In addition, it includes a 6-pack license to operate up to 100 GRT vessel and 6 paying passengers.
In 2018, Evangeline joined the US Coast Guard Auxiliary. The Coast Guard Auxiliary is a volunteer arm of the United States Coast Guard dedicated to promoting recreational boating safety as well as supporting the Coast Guard in the air and on the water.
Since joining, Evangeline has become a certified Vessel Safety Examiner, Flotilla Staff Officer of Navigational Systems, Public Affairs, and Operations and is currently in the Coast Guard Qualified Boat Crew training program which takes approximately 2 years to complete.
You may see her and her crew patrolling the coast of Cape Ann keeping the waters safe and helping to rescue those in danger or distress.
Evangeline has been working in the financial industry since 1997 in sales and customer success specializing in financial software, market data and analytical research used by institutional investors. She started her career at Thomson Financial in Boston and then accepted a promotion in New York City working with Wall Street professionals.
In August 2001, she started at Baseline Financial Services located in 2 World Trade Center on the 77th and 78th floor.
