Adventure Life's own Jennifer Barile is earning her SCUBA certification. One of our incredible Trip Coordinators, Jen is adding SCUBA to her list of outdoor hobbies that include rock and ice-climbing, trekking, camping and cross-country skiing. Adventure Life supplies our full-time employees with funding for continuing education opportunities. In the past, staff members have taken advantage of this perk to pursue interests as varied as our personalities. This includes Spanish classes, web development, kayaking lessons, Latin America economy courses, accounting … and now SCUBA classes. Jen's SCUBA certification incorporates classroom work with time in the pool. The class finishes with an open-water in Montana's Flathead Lake in the first weekend of October. Brrrr – I've been in Flathead in October and it's ... brisk. Wetsuits are recommended. Jen hopes to use her new certification exploring Belize's Barrier Reef as soon as humanly possible. And if I ask nicely, she might invite me to join her.
