Caitlyn grew up entranced by the sea. She first became SCUBA certified while in high school in southern California and found her true passion diving and studying marine life. After graduating from Cal Poly State University: San Luis Obispo with a degree in Biological Sciences and a concentration in Marine Science and Fisheries, she began her career in research diving operations and logistics. Through different universities and various opportunities, Caitlyn has been fortunate enough to travel to particularly remote parts of the world, sharing her enthusiasm for exploring the seas and marine conservation.
Working as a marine biologist, Caitlyn gained experience researching different ecosystems throughout the world and documenting their conditions as an underwater videographer. Diving research has led her to study and document manta rays in Mozambique, great white sharks in South Africa, kelp forest ecosystems in California, coral reef ecosystems throughout South East Asia, crown-of-thorns sea stars in American Samoa, and hydrothermal vents in Iceland. Her love of adventure and the natural world has exposed her to many unique ecosystems and cultures. The more she dives and discovers, the deeper her passion becomes as she strives to share and spread knowledge about these fascinating places and experiences.
Although she is constantly on the go, she considers herself always at home when the sea surrounds her.
