PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer #185487

My husband and I signed up for an Open Water class in summer 1999, planning to go on a Caribbean dive vacation the following spring.  Our check-out dives were at Bainbridge Quarry in Pennsylvania.  As an avid swimmer, I viewed diving as taking my favorite sport to greater depths.  Later that summer, escaping the heat and humidity in the calm depths of that chilly Pennsylvania quarry, I discovered diving as the ultimate healthy diversion.

I completed my divemaster program in January 2003 and have been an instructor since September 2003.   As a divemaster and instructor, I have had the total pleasure of introducing students to the underwater world, learning from each class, experiencing new things with every dive trip, and meeting wonderful people.  It just doesn’t get better than that!
