As a Marine Corps brat I grew up living all over Southern California, North Carolina & Hawaii - usually just minutes from the Pacific & Atlantic oceans - so naturally I waited until I lived in the Arizona desert to learn how to scuba dive. I was certified in July 2015 & became a Divemaster in September 2016. I'll dive whenever, wherever but my favorite dives are the coldest ones.
My first experience with scuba diving was in the Colorado's White River while in high school. This experience sparked my life-long diving fascination. This included diving for the Federal Government, doing marine research with the California Coastal Commission, SDSU and Scripts Institute., and recreational diving throughout much of the northern hemisphere. In 1990, I became a PADI OWSI instructor, MSDT, IDCS, MI, and can now teach 30+ specialties.

My family and I started diving in 2010 after taking a Discover Scuba class in St. Croix. We were hooked from the start, and have enjoyed many dive vacations. We love to dive in the warm waters of the Caribbean Islands, Fiji, and Hawaii. I love to share my Knowledge and passion for this sport with others, so it was a natural progression to become an Instructor. I was certified as in instructor in 2015, and have been actively teaching ever since.
My first SCUBA experience was in St Kitts and my very first dive was on a wreck in 2011! Loved it ever since, which is why I am enthusiastic about sharing and teaching SCUBA to people of all ages. When I see the expression in a student’s eyes when they realize they are breathing underwater is priceless to me! My passion has pushed me to continue to garner as many specialties as possible and to dive in as much of worlds waters as I can!

All it took was being asked to go on a dive vacation to Belize...Where do I sign up?? Certified in July 2015 and have not looked back, except for dive buddies along the way. Whether you roll of the boat, step off or stroll in from the beach, it's a new adventure I will never forget! My favorite dive location is still Belize, but Cozumel, Cancun, Roatan, San Carlos and so many others are very close seconds!
I have always loved being in the water, my first exposure to Scuba was over 30 years ago with a family members gear in a small pool. I have wanted to do it ever since, life slowed me down and delayed my ability to devote the time and money to it until 2010. I have loved it ever since, under the water is my personal Zen palace. And all the daily stress ad worries just disappear. I decided to help others find this peace, with a little encouragement from the Shop team. And we will see where this adventures takes me.
