    PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer - Scuba Diving since 2007

    Ever since I could remember I have been in love with the ocean and the creatures that call it home.  I got certified as a PADI diver as soon as my parents would let me.  I was certified in 2007 and the instant I hit the water I was hooked.  I continued my training over the years and eventually earned my Divemaster, Open Water Scuba Instructor, and many speciality instructor certifications here at Rainbow Reef.  I feel lucky getting to do what I love everyday.  

    Before my professional dive career, I used my passion for the ocean in college and earned a B.S. in Marine Biology from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington.  I learned invaluable knowledge about the ocean and how important it is to protect it.  I want to use my passion for scuba diving to show as many people as possible how cool the ocean is and why we need to conserve our marine habitats.  I am very excited Rainbow Reef shares my passion for conservation and continues to do its part in taking care of the reef.
