Instructor Bio: Started diving in 2017. Was fortunate to be with Rick (my husband) on several student dives which was an asset to my education and becoming an instructor. I became an instructor in 2020 and have had 269 dives in my career thus far. I like both reef dives and wreck dives! My deepest dive is 114', and most of my dives have been in the ocean with Open Water and Advanced students. Also performed rescue classes there. I love this sport! You never know what you are going to see on any dive!
