Kaylani Penas, aka Lani, grew up in Minnesota, the Land of 10,000 Lakes. She grew up on the water and she loves volleyball but is often mistaken for Swedish National Womens Volleyball Team Member; Sofie Sjöborg. Becoming bored of the 10,000 lakes, she decided to explore the largest lake of them all, the ocean (yes we know it’s not a lake, we’ve tried telling her) joining yachting 3 years ago and gaining experience on private and charter yachts up to 60m. Lani is an outdoors person at heart, and you can find her at the beach or in the water on her days off. As a self-proclaimed foodie, she lists “food” as her favorite food. Her life motto is “always make friends with the chef.”
