After diving recreationally since the 90s as part of her adventure sports regimen, Shelley finally got her PADI instructor certification in 2009 in Mexico. Wreck and deep diving are her favorite specialties and she looks forward furthering her training in Tec diving, learning more about underwater photography, and doing more diving abroad. She eventually hopes to buy a sailboat and sail herself to all of her bucket-list diving destinations.
