Ashley has always loved the ocean, and the animals in it. She got her start in SCUBA Diving with a discover scuba class, and soon got certified as an Open Water Diver in 2011. She was certified in New Jersey, and did her check out dives at Dutch Springs which is a freshwater quarry with many sunken wrecks. She hated the cold, so she moved down to Florida where she started working at JND Scuba. She plans on continuing the diving career with JND Scuba until she is at an Instructor level. Ashley became an instructor in 2017.
