Growing up commercial fishing in Bristol Bay Alaska made Rachel very comfortable living and working on boats. Her natural curiosity brought her to diving to understand the ocean that she had spent so much time on. In 2015 she attended AQ as a student and made it her goal to come back one day as a staff member. Rachel completed her PADI Instructor course in Bali and is now returning for her fifth year at AQ. She is always working to maintain a positive environment and is enthusiastically available if you need a good chat. Even better if you can teach her something new!
