What was the first dive you did and how did it influence you to start a career in the diving industry?
My first dive was off the west coast of Ireland, a “typical” cold temperate kelp dive. I was fascinated by the color, variety and amount of marine life, the experience was complete when a small shark swam by, I knew I was born to scuba dive!
What do you believe is the most important trait of a professional educator and why?
Enthusiasm. A great professional educator is enthusiastic about their job and classes, and encourages students to share the same passion as they do.
