Program Manager / Medical Person In Charge / PADI Diving Instructor
Tina has lived near, on, or under the water ever since her time as a Sea|mester student in 2008. She graduated from Bard College with a BA in Environmental Studies in 2010, after which she turned her attention to scuba diving and experiential maritime education. In the following years she earned qualifications such as PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer, STCW Medical Person in Charge, and IYT Master of Yachts 200 ton. She joined the ActionQuest team in 2012 while working towards a MA in Environmental Conservation Education at New York University. Upon graduating in 2015 she realized her dream of leaving New York to return to Sea|mester. Since then she has circumnavigated the world and explored new shores while teaching diving, sailing, and leadership development aboard SY Argo and Ocean Star. When not underwater she can be found playing her viola, editing photos, and working (very, very slowly) on the manuscript for her first novel.
