- My Summary
I have always loved the ocean and truly feel like I am at home when I am diving or just anywhere near the water. I grew up wanting to be a mermaid... when I found out that wasn't possible I became a diver and a marine biologist :) During my collegiate years I interned with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission’s Manatee Biology Department which further solidified my love for all things aquatic. I am always eager to learn more about the water and how to protect it. I am new to California and would love to explore the dive sites around here. If anyone would like to explore with me, lets be dive buddies :) See you in the water!
