SeaTrek BVI Staff Spotlight: Andrea aka “Princess”

October 29th, 2016 by Seatrek Staff |

SeaTrek BVI is proud to present the next in our series of Staff Spotlights. Enjoy!

Andrea comes to us from the beautiful Island of Puerto Rico. Naturally, she is infatuated with the ocean. Snorkeling and diving were everyday activities for her while growing up, so when Andrea first came to SeaTrek she felt right at home! During the offseason, Andrea studies Oceanography and Ocean Engineering at Stanford University. At SeaTrek, Andrea is a divemaster and program biologist teaching students about turtles, corals, reef fish, and more!

  1. When was your first summer at SeaTrek?

My first summer at Sea Trek was the summer of 2012 (5 years ago!)

  1. What is your favorite part about SeaTrek?

My favorite part about it is really hard but as a student it was getting to interact so closely with marine life that amazes me so much, and having so many great teachers who improved my learning, and getting to make such amazing friends that are still a part of my life in such a short amount of time. When I became a staff member that shifted to getting to teach people about what I care so much about, and getting to know the students and learn about what they care about. They are some of the most meaningful interactions I have had.
