We are excited to share that Amy Lee has been selected by the Diving Equipment & Marketing Association (DEMA) Awards Committee as one of four finalists for the 2019 DEMA Wave Makers Award, an early career award for those making an impact in the diving industry.

Amy is REEF’s Trips Program and Communications Manager. She has a B.A. in Public Relations and a B.S. in Marine Science from the University of South Carolina. She came to REEF as a Marine Conservation Intern in the fall of 2014, and joined the staff in April 2015. Through all aspects of her work, Amy strives to merge her passions for diving, communication, science, and travel. Amy is a shining example of a young professional who is making waves in the industry by connecting divers with meaningful actions for ocean conservation. We are proud of her accomplishments in just a few short years and are so grateful to have her as part of the REEF Team.

The Wave Makers Award recipient will be selected by vote of the DEMA Membership. As a finalist, Amy has created a video detailing her plans to continue bettering the dive industry. The video will be shared on social media, and DEMA members may vote on www.DEMA.org for their favorite finalist. Voting is open from Oct. 7-Nov. 8. The Wave Makers Award will be presented at the DEMA Awards Party on Nov. 15 in Orlando.
