Jennida 'Jedi ' ( Instructors Team )
PADI IDC Staff Instructor - Scuba Diving since 2014
Sidemount Diver Instructor
I have always been fascinated by the wonders of the ocean since I could barely walk. I didn't know anything about the world of scuba diving until I had one of my mischievous adventures around in my childhood house back in St. Louis, Missouri. I discovered some photos of my father in his old scuba gear. The fascinating scuba diving stories my dad told me have ignited my passion for scuba diving. Even though I was a young kid at that time, I knew what I wanted to do when I become older.
I first got certified as an open water diver at Hawaii when I was fourteen. By the time I turned eighteen years old, I worked my way up and became certified as an instructor. Then, I decided to give college a chance. After two semesters, I knew that it was not the right path for me.
So, I left college and went looking for a job at a dive shop anywhere in America. Guess which dive shop I found a job with! I moved down here in March of 2019 and started my career as a scuba diving instructor right here at Rainbow Reef Dive Center.
It has been a paradise for me ever since! I look forward to meeting lifelong diving friends and creating many unforgettable experiences in the Keys!
