I am originally from Michigan, but lived for ten years in France where I completed my Masters degree. I am also fluent in French and hold dual-nationality. When you ask where I am from, I will point out the town on my Michigan “hand-map” as all good Michiganders should.
I have traveled to 37 countries and love meeting new people and learning new languages. I also lived in Chicago, until deciding the cold was no longer for me.
I moved to St. Pete Beach in July 2017 and never looked back. Turns out to be one of the best decisions I ever made, because it was here I met Brenda and Captain Joe and the rest is history! I currently have a day-job at Capgemini in Miami as an account based marketer for French accounts, but diving is my true passion.
I did my discover scuba dive in 2015 and decided right then and there that I wanted to make my passion a career and share my love of the underwater world with others. My first time in the water was in Cozumel, and while I did some training at Haigh Quarry while living in Chicago, my go-to place will forever and always be Cozumel.
A PADI instructor since May 2019, and a SSI Advanced Open Water Instructor since December 2020, I truly enjoy sharing my love of diving and ocean conservation with others. My dive experience includes Bali, as well as the Mexican Caribbean and Pacific. I strive to create a fun, trusting environment for our clients and I am very patient with everyone. I will work closely with you and help you get comfortable in the water no matter what it takes.
My favorite quote is from Jacques Cousteau – the father of scuba diving, “...but man only needs to descend beneath the surface, and he is free.”
I oversee Letts Dive!!’s East coast Florida training and charter operation, as well as many of our trips both in the US, as well as abroad. Any classes that interest you can always be done on the east coast, in the beautiful Atlantic Ocean. I like to take our clients to Key Largo and Jupiter or West Palm Beach for training. I also run the social media and marketing arm of Letts Dive!! You can find me and "the other dive shop dog," Lucy the pug, in the shop once a month!
