I was certified in 1989 and immediately fell in love with diving.  Work and family kept me away from diving for an extended period, but then I started doing at least 2 dive trips a year.  My favorite “local” destination is Cozumel, and my favorite (so far) exotic destination is Raja Ampat.

Hi, I’m Jennifer. I got certified the summer when Madonna’s “Papa Don’t Preach” was the no. 1 hit. We had to manually calculate our NDL’s so in order to keep myself alive I didn’t dive much until computers were invented.

My favourite moment in scuba diving is when my buoyancy is super dialled in and I’m in the surge surrounded by sea turtles being gently held and rocked by the ocean.

I enjoyed diving from my first discover diving dive from the railing of a sail boat in Turkey.  That said I wasn’t fully comfortable.

My underwater journey commenced in 2014, guided by the expertise of the renowned Scuba 2000 instructor Joel Pomerantz. Since obtaining my certification, I've faced the cold embrace of Canada's waters and revelled in the warmth of the Caribbean seas. The unparalleled beauty of Arabia and the elusive allure of the City of Cleveland shipwreck in Tobermory rank among my most unforgettable dives. Drift diving in Brockville offers thrills that overshadow even the most adrenaline-pumping rollercoasters. Still, now and then, I set aside the hefty gear for southern voyages, immersing myself in oceans teeming with marine life. Scuba diving offers a unique serenity that's hard to find elsewhere.

Professionally, I'm a Cloud Architect dedicated to crafting sustainable and effective solutions. Despite my intense career commitments, I'm passionate about assisting the next generation of scuba enthusiasts in honing their craft.
