Despite being born and raised in the cold city of Chicago, the warm beaches and ocean have always called Sydnei’s name. A recent graduate from the University of Miami, Sydnei studied graphic design and art history. Living in Florida allows her to spend as much time as she can in the sun and near the water, diving year round. She teaches scuba classes at a local dive shop and goes out for fun dives when she has the time. She recently received her Master Scuba Diver Trainer certification, and can teach 5 specialty certifications. She is a longtime alumnus of ActionQuest, starting as a student in 2015. Out of the water, she enjoys reading, playing tennis and badminton, and is an avid runner.
