Dive Instructor/Mate/Wilderness First Responder
Maddy grew up in Toronto, Canada. She attends the University of British Columbia, where she studies marine biology. Despite her landlocked location, Maddy has loved the ocean and marine biology ever since she was young and has been diving for as long as she can remember. She has had a fascination with marine mammals in particular ever since she visited family in South Africa when she was just 5 years old. Maddy is a qualified Open Water Scuba Instructor as well as a Wilderness First Responder. For several years she was a shipmate herself at ActionQuest and has developed a strong love and passion for the British Virgin Islands. When she is not scuba diving, she can be found skiing at Whistler, skateboarding, climbing, or doing yoga with her friends.
