A third generation local
California girl, Carrie grew up on and in the water, spending most weekends
sailing out of Marina Del Rey with her dad. As a teenager, she was lucky
to be able to go to Catalina Girl Scout Camp (then called Camp White's Landing)
where she had her first scuba experience and was
immediately hooked, line and sinker! Owning a boat, Carrie then
spent all of her free time, sailing and scuba diving the wrecks of Lake
Michigan, the Coast of California and every vacation was planned around the
availability of diving. Carrie enjoyed being a Divemaster and an
Assistant Instructor for years before earning her Open Water Instructor
Certification, and continuing her diving education is currently a PADI
Instructor Development Course Staff Instructor, teaching students from Bubble
Makers thru Assistant Instructor, PADI Elite Instructor Award 2015, 2016, 2017.
Graduating from Pepperdine University with 3 degrees, she is a local girl thru and thru, and loves showing students of all ages (especially the younglings) what her world underwater look like and how to enjoy it safely.
Carrie's favorite dive is anywhere with her best dive buddy, her son, and business partner, Nick.
