Rachel was born and raised by the sea and the ocean was her first love. At seven years old Rachel knew she wanted to become a diver and when she found her first job at fourteen, it was to save up for her Open Water certification. Rachel now been a PADI diver for over 15 years. She went on to take her Advanced, EFR, Rescue Diver, and Divemaster certifications and she has logged close to 2,000 dives. Rachel worked as a research diver for the National Park Service for four seasons on the Channel Islands and she was the youngest diver to ever receive the Blue Card certification. For the last five years, Rachel has been sailing around the world on her boat, Agape, with her own compressor onboard which allows her to dive some of the world's most remote destinations. Scuba diving is one of Rachel’s greatest passions and she has built her life around exploring and protecting our planet's oceans.
"I hope to encourage and inspire others to get out and explore the beauty and wonder of our ocean."
