Aloha! I'm currently exploring options to continue my growth as a dive professional and am looking for the right company to suit my needs. I would like to find a smaller company that focuses on personal, intimate charters of dives with the opportunity to grow my number of certifications. Please reference the attached CV for more information.

I have spent the past two years gaining experience in the dive community and working towards my professional status with PADI and SSI. I have lived and taught in Australia and England as well as teaching through my local dive shop in Kansas City. I have 7 years’ experience managing a retail store, lengthy compressor knowledge as well as equipment maintenance and repair knowledge.

Magnetic Dive, Queensland, Australia
Intern – 4 months
My top priority while working at Magnetic Dive was to act as a pole model to new students and facilitate the learning process with my dive instructor. My responsibilities included:
Dive Brighton, Brighton, UK
Assistant instructor – 3 months
My role with Dive Brighton was purely to help aid the instructor through open water courses and help each student through the open water dive portion of the course.
