Before coming to BoatU.S. two years ago, Dermody was a features writer, editor and columnist for several major British and Irish newspapers and magazines, such as the Sunday Tribune, The Irish Independent, The Evening Herald, Ireland on Sunday, Woman's Way, Tatler and The Independent in Great Britain.

Dermody also holds an honors post-graduate degree in journalism, public relations and applied communications.

Most recently, she has been a contributing editor and features writer for BoatUS Magazine and BoatU.S. Trailering Magazine.

An avid boater, Dermody and her husband completed a two-year, 10,000-mile voyage aboard Desperado, their 48-foot Chris-Craft, from San Francisco through the Panama Canal and Central America, and up the East Coast to their home in Alexandria, Va.
