    PADI Advanced Open Water Diver - Scuba Diving since 2018

    I was born and raised in northern Wisconsin, making me a "Cheesehead" and Green Bay Packers fan. As long as I can remember I have always loved being in or near the water having grown up on a river and spending my summers on the boat. My husband and I lived near the coast of North Carolina for a few years growing my love for the ocean even more. While living in NC, I discovered my passion for shark tooth hunting and my collection now sits at about 1500+ shark teeth. WOW! In 2017 we moved back to Wisconsin in which we quickly realized we were no longer Wisconsinites and needed to live by the ocean again. In 2018 we decided to become SCUBA certified and fell in love with the freedom it brings you and the sites of the underwater world. I'll never forget the way it felt the first time I took a breath underwater! I also enjoy underwater photography and being able to share my experiences with others through my photos.

    After going through another freezing Wisconsin winter we decided to take the plunge into following our dreams and packed up and moved to Key Largo. I changed my career field from dental office to dive center and what a great decision that proved to be! Working here at RRDC allows me to meet so many divers from all over the world and hear their stories. I can't wait to see what this chapter brings!
