    PADI IDC Staff Instructor - Scuba Diving since 2018

    I got my Open Water certification on Mana Island, Fiji when I was 17, the only other ocean I had ever seen was the chocolate milk beaches of Galveston, TX, so when I opened my eyes underwater and saw  a whole new world, I was blown away. I got out of the water on my first dive and asked my instructor, "How do I get your job?" 6 months later, I found myself in Utila, Honduras. After another 6 months of hard work, my dream came true and I went from the world's worst Open Water Diver, to a Master Scuba Diver Trainer. Since diving was not a skill that came naturally to me, I have a lot of sympathy for my students who struggle with being comfortable in the water and need extra time and attention to get certified. I believe that everyone who wants to dive, can learn.
