After graduating from college, Tennaya wanted her career to focus on giving back to society and the environment alike. She spent a few years working with land management agencies throughout California and Arizona to better public lands for recreational use while promoting conservation efforts in vulnerable ecosystems. However her love for the ocean, travel, and adventure influenced her to explore opportunities related to scuba diving and the marine environment which is how she wound up moving to Hawaii to work at Kona Honu Divers. She is excited to increase and share her knowledge of diving and other water sports with people while staying committed to finding opportunities to positively impact Hawaii’s oceans.
