Dara, born and raised in Southern California, earned her Open Water Diver certification in 1998. After graduating from the University of Southern California, she worked as an actress for several years before moving to South Korea to teach English. All the while, she dove anywhere, anytime!
After South Korea, she moved to Thailand, where she began her professional diving career. Eventually, she became a Master Scuba Diver Trainer and EFR Instructor. She next taught in Hawaii and the U.S. Virgin Islands before landing with us in Miami. Dara is beyond thrilled to be a member of Team Squalo!
