Kate grew up in Charlotte, NC, and went to university at Appalachian State. She lived in South Korea for a couple years and on her way home spent a couple months exploring SE Asia where she caught the diving bug. She has been diving since 2015, and spent several years making bubbles as an instructor in the Florida Keys. She loves hunting for goliath grouper and bull sharks on deep wrecks, and can’t count how many times she has visited Snoopy in the USS Spiegel Grove. But Kate loves guiding drift dives and what she calls “bubblegum dives” the most, dives that are bright, colorful and relaxing, with schools of fish around every corner. Kate is pursuing a second degree at Florida International University, and is very excited to join the Dive Georgia team and explore the diving available here in Georgia.
