Lauren Dellinger grew up knowing divers but didn’t get the opportunity to become one until years later. She saw Harry’s Dive Shop’s display at the local Home and Garden Show and signed up to Try Scuba on the last Saturday of the month. Lauren fell in love with diving and is now one of our valued scuba instructors. When she was little, Lauren dreamed of being an orthopedic surgeon. Her favorite movie is Willy Wonka while the Dave Matthews Band gets her rhythm moving and the seahorse gets her underwater camera flashing. Lauren’s most memorable dive experience was when she saw her first seahorse on the reef in Cozumel and could be heard squealing with delight. This leads to tell of her hobbies of showing and competing horses (land mammals). Lauren is a lover of food and spirits and wishes to share her love of underwater photography through teaching.
