Melanie Silva

ssi assistant instructor


Mel got interested in diving when she moved to the metroplex in ’06.  She received her Open Water and Advanced Open Water certifications the next year.  Most of her diving has been in blue water because she enjoys exploring reefs and all of the marine life it encompasses. 

 After many specialty certifications, Mel became very interested in teaching and in 2015 earned her Assistant Instructor certification.  This led to her love of working with youth in turn compelled Mel to her next adventure in life of becoming an instructor.
