- My Summary
I caught the diving bug while on my honeymoon in the Florida Keys after being beaten up by waves on a snorkeling trip and watching the scuba divers below glide smoothly underneath experiencing the marine life up close. I received her Open Water certification in the summer of 1995 in Colorado in 50 degree water and 1 foot visibility in the Aurora Reservoir. It was awesome! My Advanced certification was a much warmer experience in the Florida Keys. Ever since I completed my Advanced certification I knew I wanted to obtain at least my Rescue Diver Certification. However, Sugar Land Dive Center had bigger plans for me and with their encouragement and my husbands’, I took to the road to become a Dive Instructor. My dive career has been diverse. I have been shore and boat diving in the cold waters off the beautiful California coast to the crystal clear warm waters of the Caribbean. I am also a registered nurse with over 20 years of health care experience most of them emergency room nursing focused.
