Jaclyn has been drawn to the ocean ever since a memorable field trip in the first grade. As she got older, she pursued that passion at Cal Poly, SLO where she majored in Marine Biology as well Environmental Studies. She capped off her graduation by getting her Open Water SCUBA certification before moving to Long Beach to attend graduate school at CSULB for Marine Ecology. She has been a PADI Instructor since August 2014 and loves being able to introduce her students to an environment she finds so captivating. She especially enjoys working with kids (they’re fearless!) and watching them master skills that are challenging even for adults. She is also a certified Boy Scout of America Merit Badge Counselor.
