About me

Aloha! I’m originally from Minnesota but even though my roots are in freshwater, the ocean has always held my heart. I grew up in the water, from competitive swimming to teaching swim lessons to playing in the waves during family vacations. I got my open water certification in Belize during college and was immediately obsessed. After graduating I spent a few years living, working, and diving at a field station in the Turks and Caicos where I became a Divemaster, fell in love with eagle rays, and had the privilege to participate in marine research. I’ve been on Oahu for about a year and became an Open Water Scuba Instructor. Since my first underwater breath I’ve wanted to share the world beneath the waves with other people and I’m so thankful I get to do that at Aaron’s!

One item you can't dive without

A tank-banger! So when I get really excited about something I can make sure everyone else knows šŸ˜›

Favorite Dive Site & Why

My favorite site is anywhere I can find an eagle ray or a nudibranch!!
