Born and raised in Southern Maryland, Christina became a career Firefighter/Paramedic in January of 2014, and then decided to become a certified diver in 2015 after completing the Fire academy. She took PADI OW and Advanced together, getting certified in the Caribbean. While on a training run New Year's Day, 2017, she saw the dive flag outside of SoMd Diver's, bringing her to our shop where she became excited to advance her diving career.
Christina successfully completed training in Nitrox, drysuit, Rescue and Divemaster. She is also a TDI technical diver with advanced nitrox. Through SOMD Divers, she was introduced to the Institute of Maritime History where she is an active member, diving almost ever weekend in the local waters.
Christina dives every opportunity she gets and has dove in a vast variety of conditions, from the clear waters of the Caribbean, Hawaii, and Ceynotes/caves in Florida to local black water and even lakes in Eastern Europe. Christina loves being in the water and sharing her love of diving with anyone who will listen. Christina looks forward to continuing her education and is currently looking at CCR and furthering her technical diving skills.
