    Rebreather Experience:
    I love SHARKS! I have been fascinated by sharks since I was a little girl. I love the ocean. I am an avid scuba diver and I am just about to complete my rescue diver course. I have specialties in wreck diving, underwater photography, first aid for hazardous marine life, peak performance bouyancy, emergency oxygen provider, and i just recently finished the Diveheart training program so I can be a buddy for divers with disabilities. I plan to earn my dive master and I would like to be able to teach scuba diving too, so others can experience the joy I have when underwater. My career goal is to pursue my PhD in Marine Biology wiht a specialty focus on Shark Biology. I also founded my non profit, Shark Whisperer Organization which is a community grassroot outreach program where I am all about shark advocacy, awareness and education. I implemeted a shark advocacy week program in my school and I hope that it goes all over the US. I also take people out on Stand Up Paddle Board tours, sometimes we paddle over shark nursery areas and see baby sharks. I teach the participants about why sharks are important, why they are in danger and how and why they should and can help. I also teach them about plastic in our oceans and on every single tour we bring garbage back to dispose of properly. I have been diving all over the Florida Keys, where my grandparents live, also Fiji - which is amazing, sharks on every dive, Australia - the great barrier reef, at Epcot, The Living Seas, Blackbeards LiveAboard The Bahamas, Unexso Shark Dive in the Bahamas, Alaska and most recently Guadalupe, but mostly near where I live in South Florida. I have gone diving in the wild with Bull Sharks, Great Whites, plenty of nurses, lemons, caribbean reef sharks, sand tigers, leopard sharks, wobbegongs, and so many more. I love the ocean and I love sharks. I will fight for them both, they are a part of me.
