"Just keep livin’"

Born and raised in Palm Beach, Florida I was enraptured in the beauty and uniqueness of salt water reefs and marinelife living in abundance just a foot or two beneath earth. What captured me was the vastness, and the nearly complete silence.
Even coming 10 feet from the barracudas and reef sharks made me so feel alive!! I loved it all.

Now, I’m excited to return to scuba diving after 13 years in the lakes where I live now, here in Buffalo, NY!

ICYW my goals are to advance my skills, knowledge while gaining valuable and FUN experience, diving in different places and conditions. My top goals: learn how to dive with nitrox, learn underwater navigation, and eventually, how to cave, wreck, and ice dive! I want it all! :-)

By mostly, I just want to enjoy life more by doing something fun and embracing a passion before it’s too late.
Moral: Life is too short. Just dive!

Of course, buying and owning my first wetsuit is something I look forward to; Florida waters are so warm!!!

Buzzwords to describe me: veterinary technician, chef, organic farmer, lover of music and laughing.
