About Giugi

Giugi is an attorney by day. But whenever she can, she's in the water.


In 2000, Giugi began her diving adventure in Ste. Maxime, France, as a teenager. Since then, she has explored the underwater landscape in Egypt, St. Vincent & the Grenadines, Grenada, the US Virgin Islands, the British Virgin Islands, Mexico, Costa Rica, Greece, Italy, Florida, Texas, and then some. Giugi is a CMAS*** diver, a PADI Instructor, a Nitrox Diver (IANTD), and a Level 2 CCR Diver. 

Giugi is a careful diver (hence the name!), and a patient instructor. In her own words,


"I love this sport and I want to introduce as many people to it as possible. But I also have a duty to ensure that new divers are responsible, not only about their own safety and the safety of others but also about the way they interact with the flora and fauna underwater. I want my students to go out into the world and be emissaries for a more harmonious relationship with the delicate ecosystem we are so fortunate to visit."
