My name is Linda and I’m a new addition to the KHD shop. I’m going to be contributing to our blog from time to time and wanted to introduce myself. I’ve been a PADI OWSI since 2006 and recently moved to Kona from Kaua’i. I’m currently enrolled in a PhD program at the University of Georgia’s Integrative Conservation and Anthropology program and am studying the relationships between humans and Monk seals in Hawai’i. In the upcoming weeks, I’m going to release some entries on our upcoming Galapagos trip, reef-safe sunscreens in Hawai’i, and dive safety. If there are any specific topics you’d like to hear about, I would love to know.
