Dive Club Executives

Cassandra Konecny


I joined the UBC Aqua Society in the fall of 2013 while pursuing an honours degree in Marine Biology. Since then the club and staff at the shop have become my second family. I am currently a Master’s candidate and Ocean Leader fellow in the department of Zoology at UBC. I am also a PADI Divemaster at the UBC Aqua Society. I enjoy diving for fun, helping out with courses, participating in research dives and also volunteering with various local citizen science dive projects. I am looking forward to working with both in the club exec and in the club to make this upcoming year amazing and full of underwater adventure. You can find me most weekends diving somewhere in Howe Sound or talking about how cool barnacles are! See you soon, underwater!
