After years of listening to her husband’s fish stories, Sarah finally took the plunge and became a certified PADI Open Water Diver in 2016.
Her first dive trip south was to Cozumel, and she fell in love with the sea. She used to be afraid of fish and water, a phobia that to her surprise melted away the moment she became part of the environment.
Sarah has a real job as a Nurse Practitioner, and owner of Rx Cosmetics, a medi-spa in Lindsay Ontario. With a crazy busy schedule full of high stress and challenge...... Owning a dive shop seemed like a reasonable balance, so she jumped in with both feet.
