Award Recipient


Basic Dive Training Grants, Sponsored by Erin Spengler in honor of WDHOF Member Diedre Sullivan

Erika Pirozok

Erika is a senior at the University of Washington studying Marine Biology and Quantitative Sciences. She currently works at the Institute for Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine as a Zebrafish Care Technician but is looking to put her newly found diving skills to use for field research. Once she is officially Open-Water certified, she will continue on to gain her Scientific Diving certification to pursue her passions in marine conservation. Erika aims to earn a Ph.D. in Marine Science and Conservation, but for now, she will use diving to explore her favorite blue ecosystem.
