Divemaster on boat
Stephanie is originally from the Philadelphia suburbs and grew up spending summers on Long Beach Island, NJ. She has always been a water baby, chasing the sun, warm weather, the ocean and all it has to offer. For her 30th birthday, she took a trip to Australia and got her Open Water certification on the Great Barrier Reef. Lucky Fish!
Over the next 7 years, Stephanie found herself spending more and more time diving here in the Florida Keys. She began participating in special dive trips to clean up debris and plant baby coral with organizations like I.CARE and CRF.
Inspired by experiences like these, in June of 2020 — yes, in the midst of a pandemic! — she decided to make a life change and pursue a career in dive instruction. Stephanie left a great job as a client director in technology consulting, sold her home, packed up whatever could fit in her Subaru and made a permanent move to the Sunshine State with her COVID rescue pup Kokomo.
Now a PADI-certified Instructor who works with a couple other outfits in the Keys, Stephanie spends a lot of time underwater! Otherwise you can find her cuddling with her pup, paddle boarding *and* planning for her own sailing and diving charter business in the Caribbean in the future.
