PADI DiveMaster - Scuba Diving since 2016
My story doesn't begin with diving. I was born and raised in Sacramento, CA. I have always loved the water, and spent a ton of time at the beaches in Northern California. My family loved to camp on the beach in Bodega Bay. We also spent a lot of time camping in the Sierra Nevadas. We always had a boat, and would spend our time playing on the water.
My favorite memories of childhood are those exploring tide pools, swimming in the ocean, or just hanging out on the beach. I had hopes of becoming a Marine Biologist, but life took me down a different path.
Once I had my two sons, my family continued the tradition of spending time in the water. We continued camping at various Northern California beaches, and also travelled to tropical destinations- always centered around the ocean. All this without being a scuba diver!
My family and I moved to Florida on a whim in 2015. I landed a management position with Ocean Divers, and that's when I finally became a diver - working my way from Open water diver to a PADI Divemaster! Working as a Manager allowed me the flexibility of spending time with my family, and still being able to dive as much as possible.
It's a thrill to work with such a diverse group of people in the diving industry who have the same passion for conservation and the ocean.
The exciting thing for me is now that my 14 year old son is a diver too, we can have family fun and dive! The family that dives together stays together!
