Please tell us more about your diving experience and certification level including number of dives made and maximum depth.

I am not scuba certified, but I have been snorkeling for 35+ years and supporting my children and grandchildren with all their diving activities.

Have you been involved with reef restoration or underwater archaeology before?

I have assisted with creating artificial reefs in the Florida Keys and have discovered artifacts from the Long Key Fishing Camp and Overseas Railroad.

How much time would you expect to devote to volunteering?

I can be available when needed.

How can we make a difference in our oceans?

By removing trash from the beach and ocean surface and bottom, safely anchoring in the sand, abiding by the fishing rules and regulations of Florida, and educating the younger generation on the protection and conservation of marine resources. I have a special interest in protecting tropical fish and their natural habitats.

What special skills can you bring to the team?

Many years of boating and fishing experience particularly as a spotter for ascending divers, nearing watercraft, and surfaced marine life such as turtles and manatees. I am familiar with most diving equipment and can provide assistance to divers preparing to enter the water or upon their return. As a retired physician, I can help educate other members on first aid and resuscitation.
