Background:

After many months of debating a Christmas gift for her husband, Kate signed herself and her husband (hi James!) up for open water certification classes at East Coast Divers in 2015. They’ve been part of the crew ever since. Over the last few years she has enjoyed many trips abroad with ECD and has worked her way up to Dive Master. Never in one place for too long, Kate can often be found in the shop, at the pool, or hanging out on a dive boat (or a frozen lake!) getting ready to take off underwater in her neon SCUBA gear!

Currently, she is taking some time to explore the tankless underwater world of freediving, and is looking forward to being one of the shops finest Mermaid instructors in the near future!

Holds the following ratings:

  • Dive Master
  • Dive Guide

Dive Kit:

Kate's favorite gear includes her lime green Ladies First Santi Emotion with Thenar dry gloves, matching halcyon wing with Apeks backplate and Hollis Elite2 harness, and even some lime green Mares Avantii Quattros. In more tropical waters, she mostly relies on her neon pink Bare Evoke 3mm wetsuit, and her favorite matching Deep See Clarity mask.
