Kelsey - with coral

Retail Associate

       Coming from four generations of hard hat scuba divers, Kelsey knew that SCUBA would play a big part in her life. Once she got certified in 2013, she hasn't looked back since. Three years later, Kelsey decided to take her scuba career to the next level after taking a Coral Reef Ecology course in Roatan, Honduras. "Scuba diving every day in Roatan was the trip I needed to make me realize that I want to make this my job." Graduating with a Bachelor's degree in Environmental Science from Berry College in 2019, Kelsey moved to Florida to pursue her diving career. She then joined the internship program at Heroes Dive Center in early 2020, where she has since completed her Divemaster certification. After officially joining the Heroes Dive Center team, Kelsey now helps lead dive trips and assist our instructors with classes. She's always eager to share her diving experiences and her passion for coral reefs.
