“It’s dive o’clock somewhere!”
Her diving adventure started with a try dive in a swimming pool in The Netherlands, over 10 years ago. She just loved the feeling of being weightless underwater! After the first 100 dives in the cold and often murky waters in The Netherlands she got her first 'proper' clear and warm water dive around Mallorca (Spain) - that was the tipping point - her passion was born!
Course after course followed to become a PADI divemaster to be able to work abroad in tropical water with colorful coral reefs! After working as a divemaster in Hawaii and the Netherlands she did her PADI IDC (dive instructor course) in Thailand. As a PADI OWSI dive instructor, later MSDT and IDC Staff, she worked in Thailand, The Maldives, The Philippines and Indonesia. On the other hand she still loves diving and teaching in The Netherlands as well. Her mission is to inspire and empower people about marine conservation through education and recreation.
The last dive course she did was Advanced Nitrox with Technical Diving International (TDI).
Three dive dreams on her bucket list: Socorro in Mexico, Wolf & Darwin in the Galapagos and Polar diving in Antarctica.
