Working with Lauren was a great experience! She was also my instructor for my rescue and shark conservation course. She is an amazing dive instructor and really knows how to make every volunteer enthusiastic about diving and sharks, while holding great responsibility for our safety. Throughout my time I have learned so much from her during both on land and diving activities. The survey dives were my favorite, and with Lauren as a dive instructor you are almost guaranteed to see a lot of interesting marine life. Her passion, enthusiasm, and knowledge with regards to diving and (shark) conservation helped me as a volunteer to gain more insight into the project and made me feel like I was actually helping and making a difference. All in all, it was the best!
