Company: Annapolis Fishing Charters
Location: Edgewater, Maryland, United States
Dorothy Tuohey, Owner of Annapolis Fishing Charters, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Business Owners for dedication, achievements, and leadership in boating.
With more than 40 years of professional experience, Ms. Tuohey has been the owner of Annapolis Fishing Charters since 2013. In addition to her primary role, she has served as the head captain of Chesapeake Marine Tours for 14 years. She has also served as a sailing instructor for 40 years, and she has been a boat captain for 42 years. She is a member of the Upper Bay Charter Boats Association and the Annapolis Drum and Bugle Corps.
Ms. Tuohey was inspired to pursue a career in the field from an early age, having grown up near the water and spent a lot of time on her mother’s boat. She was later encouraged by a mentor who taught her how to sail and helped her to get her captain’s license. After gaining experience, Ms. Tuohey became the third woman in the United States to obtain a Coast Guard license, and, unfortunately, there have been many men who have tried to force her out of the business. She does not let their doubts affect her, though. Looking to the future, she hopes to start another business and retire from her current company.
