scuba instructor

In 2001, the local dive shop in Maryland mailed cards inviting people to come “Discover Scuba Diving” and my husband fell in love with breathing underwater. I was talked into taking the open water class with him and since then we have enjoyed many dives together including scrubbing the FL Aquarium Coral Reef exhibits. I love living on the edge, whether it is diving to 100 feet depth or climbing redwood trees 100 feet off the ground. At Calypso, I am “jill” of many skills primarily working the retail floor and coordinating the scuba and lifeguard classes. My passion is teaching classes to convert new timid divers into confident and excited divers.
