Hi! My name is Michelle, and I’m a scuba diver. I’m also a nursing student and a dog mom. This blog was originally created to share my diving and travel experiences, but as of this writing (October 25, 2018), I realize it’s evolved into its own creature. My first degree is a BS in Biology; I love science, and you’ll see that on this blog.

You’ll still find a lot of diving information and anecdotes here. I’m a dive master and one day I’ll be an instructor. There’s other outdoorsy stuff, life stuff, dog stuff..¬†oh dear god. I accidentally become a lifestyle blogger. Sorry, guys. I did the same thing to my YouTube channel.

When I started Dive Belle, I was working at a local dive shop in Tampa Bay as a travel coordinator. I was more actively diving then. Now I’m working as a nursing aide, and I’m in school for my RN/BSN. So I’ll be extra handy on dive trips in case anything goes sour (unless it’s your dive computer. I’m not techy. Nope.).

I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move. – Robert Louis Stevenson

Most of my travel is around Florida and Louisiana. I moved to Florida from Louisiana in 2015. I’ve been up and down the east and southeast coast of the US, but not too many other places – yet! I hope you find whatever it is you’re looking for, or simply find something enjoyable on this blog. I enjoy writing, creating, and sharing, so that’s what I do here.
