ABOUT THE HOSTS
Business Development Manager, PADI EMEA
Erika came to work at PADI over 20 years ago, after discovering a new career as a PADI Instructor. Following a successful career in another industry, Erika learned to dive and quickly went on to become a PADI Instructor so that she could share her passion for scuba diving with others. It’s a job that has taken her all over the world to places like Africa, Malta and the Maldives, discovering new people, cultures and the most magnificent oceans and their inhabitants.
Instructor Development Programs Specialist, PADI Americas
In his role at PADI, Eric has the pleasure of training PADI Members how to use PADI courses, programs, products, and services to bring joy, adventure, and a love for the aquatic environment to their students and customers in turn. Eric first learned to scuba dive as a 14-year-old while living in Zambia and, because of diving, found a career that has taken him on adventures all over the world.
Rocio Gajon Bunker
PADI AmbassadiverTM and Course Director
Rocio grew up in the small town of La Paz, Mexico. Her heart belonged to the oceans the moment she submerged beneath it for the first time. Since then, every step of her life has been dedicated to the oceans. Rocio became a PADI Instructor in 2009 because she wanted to help the diving community, introduce people to scuba, train divers to gain confidence underwater, and develop skills and knowledge to respect and protect our seas.
