    PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor - Scuba Diving since 2010

    • Full FaceMask Instructor

    I was born and raised in Colorado a long way away from the beautiful ocean I so greatly enjoy. When I was 14 years old I realized I had a passion for the ocean and decided to become a scuba diver and spend my summers in the British Virgin Islands getting my certifications and living on a sail boat. I decided to attend university and graduated with a bachelor's in finance. Although I love numbers I found that I was not ready to work in finance and I wished to be at the ocean more often. Over the years I found that I wanted to teach people about the art of diving and felt no better way to do that than obtain my Instructors certification and a few specialties. I decided that there would be no better place to get this certification than Rainbow Reef and loved the course so much I decided to stay and work.

    Before coming to Key Largo, I worked as a nanny which taught me more about patience then I ever thought possible. Being a nanny helped me understand that everyone is different, and I have used this to further me in diving and reminded me to take every moment one step at a time. I can't wait to dive everyday and learn and teach new things whenever the opportunity presents itself.
