    PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor - Scuba Diving since 2016

    Growing up in northern Minnesota, my first scuba diving encounter was in a freshwater lake. When I was 13 my aunt let me try on her scuba diving gear at our cabin, and it was then that I took my first breaths underwater. Since then I have been growing more curious about the underwater world. In 2016 I became an open water diver, and I knew it was only the beginning!

    When I’m not diving, you can catch me doing something outdoors. I love to go to the beach, kayak, hike, mountain bike, play sand volleyball, and pretty much any other activity you can think of!
