About Katie Smith
Katie grew up in Ann Arbor, MI spending every day of the summers in a pool or a lake. After several vacations spent snorkeling and watching the scuba divers have fun without them, she and her family decided to get certified in 2007. Once she was certified, she was hooked! Every winter vacation was spent in a tropical location getting another level of certification.
Katie attended Denison University in Granville, OH and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and a Bachelor of Science in Psychology in 2014. In January of that year she also completed her Divemaster training. With all of her new qualifications Katie wasn't sure what her next step should be so she took a job at a local dive center in her home town. There she learned the trade of working in a dive shop and also became an Open Water Scuba Instructor and eventually a Master Scuba Diver Trainer.
After doing one too many cold water dives, Katie decided to move to Hawaii and join the Island Divers staff so that she could have an excuse to dive everyday and to help introduce new divers into the wonderful world of scuba.
