Alisa was raised in Florida and has never been far from the water. She was a competitive swimmer for nine years and has been diving since she was sixteen. Her passion for scuba and the underwater world has only increased over the years. Alisa studied ecotourism in college and became a PADI scuba instructor in 2014. She has spent the last five years traveling and teaching scuba but most recently spent time in the Pacific Northwest teaching preschool. Alisa enjoys being outside as much as possible whether it’s hiking, swimming, or diving, and has a huge passion for experiential education. This is her fifth year working with the Global Expeditions Group family and she is more than excited to continue this adventure!
