Ocoee River Trip Leader – Christine

Ocoee River Trip Leader - Meet ChristineChristine Mashburn-Paul – OAC Trip Leader
Ballerina, boater, Ocoee River Guide, Yoga instructor, what can’t she do? Christine has been around the Ocoee Adventure Center and the Ocoee River since we started. She has a good reason – her dad founded our company. Christine gets no special treatment though, she trained to be a river guide just like she was a stranger off the street, and worked her way up through the ranks to become one of our best trip leaders! She’s back in 2010 after working in California in the summer of 2009 and dancing in the winter. Christine will split her time this year between dancing for the Chattanooga Ballet, teaching yoga and guiding for the Ocoee Adventure Center!


It was a ‘Raft guide – Ballet – Yoga’ Wedding in 2009!
