I did my first skydive in 1999, on a whim, and was so amazed by the feeling of freedom that I just had to try it again.... And again, and again, and again and again.
Since then, I've retired from a midwifery career to nurture budding skydivers full-time. I've started and run a drop zone near Santa Cruz, CA, taught hundreds of students to skydive, as an AFF instructor, and facilitated thousands of tandem skydives.
My style is gentle and nurturing but extremely confident and competent. Don't get me wrong, if you want hard core, I can make it EXTREME!
