I help others understand the underwater world through my photography, design, and by sharing my exploration.

An American Immersion

How the first woman to dive all 50 states was transformed by her quest

I applied rugged passion and dedication to complete a five-year journey in which I became the first woman to dive all 50 states. An American Immersion relives my journey. It shows what motivated my quest and how I transformed from a successful designer into a conservation artist to help the world around us. I overcame time and financial obstacles to illuminate our underwater resources through vivid photography.

First woman to dive 50 states

In 2011, I set out to dive all 50 states so that I could raise awareness of our country's beautiful underwater world. This journey has transformed how I see our ecology, how I take photos, and my goals and future projects. I complete this journey in 2015 and look forward to sharing the story with you in my book, on Facebook, and in presentations.
