  Why did you start diving?

I started diving because I finally reached a place in my life where I wanted to start doing some of the things I have always wanted to do.   As a kid growing up, I watched the Undersea World of Jacques Cousteau, Sea Hunt, and Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea with my family and was fascinated by the undersea world.   I never thought I would get a chance to do or see any of the things I saw on TV.

 

  How long have you been diving?

I was able to take a discover scuba class on a trip in 1986 to the British Virgin Islands and I was hooked.  My situation didn't allow me to follow up on this until the end of 1999.   I took my Open Water Diver Class at Treasure Cove and never stopped.   By 2000 I was a Dive Master  and by the end of 2001 I was a Certified PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer.

 

  Where is your favorite place to dive?

Scuba has allowed me to meet people and make friends all over the world.   I have many favorite places to dive, for reef diving you can't beat the Caribbean  (including Cozumel, The Bahamas, and Honduras), I would have to say my all time favorite dive destination is the Exuma Cays in the Bahamas, for wreck diving there is no place like home, the cold waters of Lake Erie.  

 

 

  Why did you start diving?

I was living in Hawaii and it seemed like a great idea.

 

  How long have you been diving?

I was initially certified in 1978 by NAUI.

 

  Where is your favorite place to dive?

Any place with clear warm water.  My wife and I usually make two trips a year to Curacao, so I guess it would be one of my favorites.

I had actually tried a Discover Scuba in the Bahamas 11 years before I took classes at Treasure Cove. I was terrified of the 3rd Dimension underwater and saw nothing but the Divemasters fins.  I was not going to be left behind or lost.  Eleven years later my husband TOLD me, we (husband and the boys-- a 12 year old and 14 year old) were going to take scuba classes since Nathan was now 12 years old.

I got certified in May of 2001.  I've been teaching since June of 2010.  After taking proper training and learning more about Scuba, I became more comfortable underwater and continued to dive and train, eventually becoming an instructor.

I'm still looking for my favorite place, there are still a lot of great dive sites I haven't been to yet.  If I had to choose, it would be a night dive at the Fredericksted Pier in St. Croix.

 

  

  Why did you start diving?

I first became interested in diving while watching Sea Hunter and The Under Sea World of Jaques Cousteau.  While raising a family and working, I never had the time to get certified.  One year during a vacation to the Bahamas, I was asked to go scuba diving and took an introductory scuba class, once I got the taste I could not wait to get back in the water, I was hooked! 

 

  How long have you been diving?

In 2004 I became a Divemaster.  I dove many Lake Erie wrecks along with diving the Graveyard of the Atlantic. For a bit I dabbled in technical diving and dove on the Roy Jodery in the Saint Lawrence Seaway at 195’.  In February of 2009, I became an assistant instructor and in June of 2009 became an Instructor.  I am currently a Master Scuba Diver Trainer qualified to teach a variety of specialty courses and assist and train the Trumbull County Sheriff's Department.
