Educator, Scientific Diver, Ocean Advocate
A scuba class changed Liz’s life plans — she couldn’t get enough of all things under water. Maintaining an interest in diving medicine during graduate work at UNH, Liz taught scuba as a NAUI instructor and conducted research at the UNH hyperbaric chamber. Liz is a facilitator of diving and underwater science. She has trained over a thousand students in scuba and scientific diving. Liz has mentored many students, encouraging them to become diving scientists, technicians in a science diving lab, as well as diving instructors and DSOs for academic institutions around the world. Saturation in Aquarius, diving under the ice in Antarctica, and using CCRs to conduct research in 100m coral reef environments are highlights of her 35+ year career.
