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 at Willow Springs in Lancaster, Pa. In 1981 and as an open water diver, I couldn’t get enough of the underwater world
What do you believe is the most important trait of a professional educator and why?
You must be receptive to “Change”. In teaching students you need to learn how to read your students and get into their heads to make sure they are learning the program. Everyone is different and learning isn’t the same for each one of us. This is one of the reasons I love SDI/TDI, we can conform our training to the students learning the ability.
