I guess you could say I “Dove into diving”. Being a Durango native I always longed for the salt water I had never been to. I spent most of my summers at any body of water Durango had to offer (Navajo, Molas, McFee, and so on). I became an Instructor because it kept me diving and I love to see the look on the face of a new diver, the first time they experience the three dimensional world of diving. ...

I started diving when I met my husband. It was a whole new world that I never dreamed I would be exploring. I love the fact that as soon as you go under the water everyday life just disappears. I never would have guessed this is what I would have been doing as a career, but I found my niche where I can do everything I ever wanted to do; teach, work with kids, sign language and travel.

I am a 4th generation Durangoan, that developed an enthusiasm for being underwater at an early age. At the age of 14/15, I was employed to clean the deep end of the Durango Swimming Pool using mask and surface supplied air. This led to a lifetime of Scuba enjoyment and world travel. I have dove with whale sharks in Belize, the whales off Maui, the hammerheads of Galapagos and the Mantas of Fiji. Hopefully this is just the start of many more dive adventures.

I enjoy the relaxing aspects of tropical diving and tropical climates. I also like the challenges of technical diving and pushing my limits with decompression diving and using alternative breathing gases. Whether it’s a warm water coral reef in Bonaire or a cold and dark drysuit dive in a mountain lake, I feel equally comfortable and I enjoy both extremes and everything in between.

“Diving has become a passion in my life – I feel blessed to have discovered it. Breathing underwater is the most amazing experience. Being able to move around the underwater world in all directions instead of being stuck on the ground is one of my favorite aspects to diving. Becoming a dive instructor has brought me the additional thrill of seeing new divers experience the underwater world.
