Carlie is from Sinking Spring, PA, a small town an hour from Philadelphia. She has loved scuba diving, watersports, and spending time outdoors her whole life, especially if that time was spent in the BVI. She received her PADI open water certification when she was 12, and knew that she had to make diving a significant part of her life. She took some time off from competitive swimming during the summer of 2013 to participate in an ActionQuest program, which inspired her to become a first mate working for AQ this year. Carlie is graduating from Hamilton College in Upstate New York in May, with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and minors in Sociology and Law. She has participated in community service and environmental service initiatives in Fiji, Bali, and Hawaii, and loves the adventure that traveling brings. In her free time she enjoys going on long walks with her dog, skiing, listening to music, and spending time with friends and family. She is very excited to be on the teaching-side of ActionQuest, meet new people, and have a great summer teaching students.
