Kate grew up a competitive swimmer and scuba diver in Boston, MA. Having interned at her local dive shop after high school, she got bit by the diving bug and hasn’t looked back. Kate earned her Divemaster certification at 18, instructor certification at 20, and completed her BA in Archaeology at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland. After working full-time as a scuba instructor after graduation, Kate realized how much she loves teaching and is now pursuing a Masters of Education at Boston University. She has taught scuba in New England, Ireland, and the U.S. Virgin Islands as an SSI Instructor, PADI Instructor, and BSAC Assistant Instructor. Kate’s a big fan of hiking, road trips, tacos, and puns and is constantly hoping to see dolphins when she gets in the water.
