Break Down Barriers with Scubility

Able-bodied or not, anyone can scuba dive. It might take a little more work to get in the water, but it can be done. Military veterans and disabled people both find diving to be great physical and mental therapy. Due to their disabilities, they have already adapted to different daily routines so adapting to the underwater world, while unfamiliar and a totally different experience, doesn't seem to challenge them as one might think!

About Kate

I’m originally from the Chicago area in Illinois and graduated from Western Illinois University with a degree in Spanish and a minor in Scuba diving.  I earned my Open Water certification in 2013 and my passion for diving has grown ever since.  Once I graduated college I started working at DJ’s Scuba Locker Inc. where my career took off and I was able to explore areas of diving that initially I didn’t know were a possibility. I am excited to be here and hoping to grow my passion for diving.  When I’m not diving, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.
