Danielle Marchante went diving on the Loggerhead boat on a Saturday morning, and less than a week later she was a member of the USA Dive Club. While on the Loggerhead, Danielle met USA Dive Club member, Laura. During conversation, Laura told Danielle about our Club and the rest is history. Danielle holds an Advanced Open Water/NITROX certification and has made lots of dives...too many to count. Her most memorable dive was in the Galapagos when two whale sharks paid her a visit during her safety stop. A trip to Thailand is high on her list of dream dive locations and, when not diving, she spends time with family, friends and her doggies.
David Beckhouse and Rachel Dunn are a married couple and joined the Club together. David was previously a Club member. He is an Open Water/NITROX diver with 110 logged dives, and would like to visit the Great Barrier Reef. His favorite dive was in Cozumel and, when not spending time in the water, he enjoys cycling.
Rachel is recently certified with 12 open water dives. David and Rachel are joining USA Dive Club member Nancy Styles and other family members on a multi-generational overseas dive to Bonaire.
Hector Piza and granddaughter Holly Piza are two more family members re-joining the Club to travel with Nancy Styles on the overseas dive trip to Bonaire.
Hector Piza is an Advanced Open Water/NITROX diver with over 300 dives. His fondest memory of diving was on a night dive in Nassau and he hopes to explore the underwater world in the Galapagos Islands. He thinks a trip to CoCo View Resort in Roatan, Honduras, would be a great trip for the Club to plan in the future.
Holly Piza was certified in 2002 as Advanced Open Water/NITROX. Diving with a manta ray in Bali is something she will never forget. Her dream dive would be in clear water with lots of diversity. Living in Colorado, Holly is happy spending time on the slopes and practicing yoga.
