President at Society Of Lady Divers/Lady Diver
I am a PADI
Dive Master/Assistant Instructor here in San
Diego. Scuba diving is my greatest passion!
I've been taking visitors on local dive tours
for many years. Whether we are diving exciting
ship wrecks or exploring glimmering kelp forest,
I'm there to provide a fun safe dive experience
that you will not soon forget! I'm also an
underwater photographer who has an eye for
the hidden gems of our dive sites. I never
know what I'm going to find but I always know
what I'm looking for....
Deck/Guided Tour Dive Master
from Open Water to Instructor here in San
Diego, I headed straight to the tropics to
teach on liveaboard boats in Australia on
the Great Barrier Reef. A year went by then
I ended up bumming around Southeast Asia for
a bit working as an instructor in Thailand.
Now I'm back to my roots here in San Diego
doing what I love. I have a strong passion
for diving and love being underwater with
the marine elements. I always make sure everybody
has a good time. See ya down there!
