My mission is to train skillful divers who want to stay active in the diving community. I focus on educating people about the marine environment and how to enjoy, utilize, work in the water safely and sustainably.
I am a career biologist and professional educator at both the high school and community college level. I am an avid outdoors person who is at home in the mountains and on and under the water. I began scuba diving in 1997 and earned my instructor in 2000. My love of the ocean started when I saw it for the first time at the age of five. I enjoy teaching others the art and science of scuba diving, taking underwater pictures, and diving in the great pacific northwest. I teach all levels of NAUI Scuba diving including the leadership sequence.
