Retired
Scuba Diving Path:
My interest in diving began in 1995 when my (then) 8 year old daughter
expressed an interest. She was too young at the time to start, so I did! What a trip! After I started, I couldn't stop! It is so amazing, between the places I go and the people I meet. After 10 years of diving I decided I wanted to advance and become a Dive Master. And then in 2004, I
went on to become a Dive Instructor
