"I have been involved with diving for over 28 years, seen many changes.  I got hooked on scuba by watching Sea Hunt, Flipper, when they were not in re-runs.  To this day, my greatest moments in diving is introducing a people to the underwater world.  My favorite place to dive in the outer banks of Belize.  It is the second largest barrier reef in the world, second only to Australia."

A water-baby from New York, Casey is enthusiastic to learn about scuba and share her passion with others. She studied anthropology and ocean technology at Indiana University, and it is her anthropological effort to help other people explore the underwater realm. Her favorite dive location is Cozumel, Mexico, where you can drift along effortlessly with stunning marine life, floating over endless expanses of vibrant coral.

Jim Lemke
Jim "Pool Boy" L
SSI Instructor, PADI MSDT Instructor, Sales Consultant, Trip Consultant
I am the Aquatics Director for Columbus Parks and Recreation. I have been diving for 10 years. My wife, Carla, was certified through SIS. She encouraged me to get certified since I was an aquatics director, and so I could be her dive partner. I have dove in the Dominican Republic and many sites in Florida. One of my favorite dives though was recovering a 1,700lbs sculpture, “Skopos” lost in White River during the flood of 2008 in Columbus. I love being a PADI Instructor because I get to share my experiences and introduce people to the underwater world!

SDI Assistant Instructor
"One summer in Cyprus, in 1999, I found myself with time to spare and decided to learn scuba diving. Eleven years and many courses and adventures later, this has become quite the habit. I enjoy a variety of diving including the kelp forests of California's Channel Islands, reefs in Florida, mines in Missouri and South Africa, caves of Florida and the Yucatan, and even some local Indiana quarries and spring caves.
Time spent underwater is always time well spent!"

SDI Assistant Instructor.
My first diving experience was in Mexico back in 1996. After a few inactive years I started the process over again with SIS. Besides Cancun, Cozumel and the Bahamas, my favorite place to dive (to date) has been in Jamaica, having done over 100 dives there. But the most rewarding experience is helping new divers discover the underwater world!

Sam F
SSI Assistant Instructor, Since being certified in 1989 I have expanded my diving interests to wrecks in the Great Lakes and the caves of Missouri, Mexico, Florida, Kentucky and Indiana.  Diving locally offers some good sites to learn and sharpen skills.  There are so many places that offer interesting diving that a person can not run out of dive sites.  Working with students is a great way to make new friends, learn more about teaching and keep dive skills sharp.
