Additional Info

Liz started diving in 2007. Her father was a commercial diver and would tell her stories about diving. Liz was intrigued and wanted to experience scuba diving for herself. Finally, for her 21st birthday, her dad bought her scuba lessons. Scuba diving was everything Liz imagined it to be and more. From the first time she laid eyes on a shipwreck underwater, she knew that underwater was where she wanted to be, and she wanted to share it with others. Less than a year later, Liz had logged over 400 dives, earned her PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor rating and never looked back.

Today, Liz is a GUE Tech 2 diver and is certified on two different types of Closed-Circuit Rebreathers. She has dived along the east and west coasts of Canada and the United States. On average, she logs between 300-400 dives per year. Liz strives to pass this experience on to her students so new and experienced divers can benefit from the experience she has accumulated over more than 3,000 dives.

Although Liz is a passionate technical diver and loves to explore deep shipwrecks; the most rewarding experience for Liz is watching a student light up when they go underwater for the first time. Liz’s goal as an instructor is to provide students, new and experienced, with first class training to explore the underwater world and share her passion for scuba diving safely and confidently. Diving is supposed to be simple and stress free and Liz wants to give this to her students right from the very beginning of their first scuba diving experience.
