Sometimes your life gives you a moment of pause and you have the time to reflect on what is important and what isnít.† So we want to take some time to reflect on the ďwhat is importantĒ over the next few weeks.† So first on my list was Mermet Springs, a quality quarry dedicated to customer service.

Second on my list is my staff.† I have explained many times that I am truly blessed by the people that are a part of Blue Meridianís incredible staff.† Over all the years I have been in business, each person on our team has brought something unique to Blue Meridian.† Whether they are here for a short time or with me to the end, each one is a talent, a gift to this team and in turn to our wonderful customers.† Now, some move on and never look back, others come back from time to time and that is okay, every person has a destiny to fulfill, Iím grateful that Blue Meridian has been a part of that fulfillment for so many good people, whether for a short or long time.

Letís talk about the current Blue Meridian Crew! They make me smile, they are my friends and extended family.†† Each one is this unique bundle of skill, professionalism, compassion and pure diver!†



Dave Faulkenberg and Rob Rold are the Instructor Staff, along with me.† They are both fabulous instructors and the wonderful thing that has happened over the years is that in addition to teaching our standard courses, they have broken out into areas that they love such as Public Safety, Full Face and Drysuit courses for Dave to Tec and Sidemount courses for Rob.† Each man passionate about their distinctive areas of diving and yet also excited to introduce a new student to the underwater world in our PADI Open Water course. That my friends is the mark of a great instructor.† No arrogance, no cockiness just a love of diving that shows in any class they choose to teach. Let me know when you find that anywhere else in this area!


Asst. Instructor:

Ellan Swartz has been on this team from day 1.† Actually, she and I worked together for many, many years at Dolphin Dive Center.† We met on a Panama City Beach trip and became fast friends. The next thing you know we met again in some dive classes and then the big jump to Divemaster and we were the females breaking into the male world of diving in this area.† Please note I have left the dates off to protect our ages!† We loved teaching but also dive travel and began to inch our way into that arena at Dolphin so it was a no brainer who would be my travel coordinator in addition to her Assistant Instructor role at Blue Meridian.† Ellan is likely one of the most compassionate, calming people I have ever known.† She is the fairy god mother of mask clearing and I am never surprised at what a few minutes with Ellan will do to reassure and calm the most nervous of students .† She is compassion in living form.† I am honored to have this lady on my team, she is a true asset to Blue Meridian and my sister by another Mother!


Katie bar the door!† These are my ambassadors of fun!† What makes a great Divemaster?† First you need to be an exceptional diver, second you need to have kindness and compassion for every student you encounter, third you need to know who needs what before they even know it themselves and lastly you have to love diving.† How lucky is Blue Meridian, we have 7 on staff.† Each one a very skilled diver, a very efficient assistant and each very passionate about being a Divemaster.† Again, some have been with me from day 1 of Blue Meridian and others have come and gone and some have come back again!† There is not enough I can say about my current crew of DMís, they are the soul of this team and I am thrilled to have Hugh Ogle, Lucian Lott, Randy Tomblinson, Steve Roberts, Lisa Minton, Jared Meyerholtz and Larry Cissna on the Blue Meridian Crew!


Customer Service:

Ms. Jennifer Withers is either behind the desk, answering the phone or working on her college/EMT courses.† So glad to have her back on the team again this summer!† She is a great diver and hopefully someday she will be on my crew as a DM!


So, come dive with us and get to know my crew!† You will agree with me that they are a huge part of what makes Blue Meridian Dive Center the best in the Tri-State!
