We are excited to share that REEF’s Amy Lee was awarded the Diving Equipment & Marketing Association (DEMA)'s Wave Makers award for 2019 last weekend at the DEMA Show in Orlando, Florida. She was selected for this early career award for the impact she is having through conservation and education initiatives in the dive industry. Amy is REEF’s Trips Program and Communications Manager and has been part of our staff team since 2015. Through all aspects of her work, Amy strives to merge her passions for diving, communication, science, and travel. She is always looking for ways to inspire new divers and young people interested in the oceans, and she aims to make ocean science accessible and fun. Amy is a shining example of a young professional who is making waves in the industry, connecting divers with meaningful action for ocean conservation. She leverages her strengths in science communications, teaching, and natural history, and we are proud of her accomplishments in just a few short years. Congratulations Amy!
