My Summary

I started scuba diving in 1999 and fell in love with the underwater world. I became a PADI Divemaster in 2002 and a PADI Instructor in 2011. In 2013 I decided to pursue diving as my career and since then, I’ve completed an Oceanography degree from the University of West Florida and have continued my diving education. I love teaching students how to scuba dive so they can experience the wonders of our incredible water planet. In being passionate about the ocean, I'm therefore passionate about preserving and conserving it and partnering with Project AWARE in order to make that happen.

I actively promote the 10 Tips for Divers to Protect Our Ocean Planet by asking all students to take the pledge in class!  Let's work together to protect our Ocean planet!
