Sheila Blum


Retail Manager & Divemaster


Sheila got in to diving in 2009 when she did a Discover Scuba Diving boat trip in Cozumel, Mexico at her best friend’s destination wedding and it forever changed her life.  Over the next few years Sheila dove as much as she could in the quarries of North Carolina and trips to Caribbean islands.  She took almost every PADI class she could (except Ice Diver, because, well, BRRRR!) and completed her PADI Divemaster class with her favorite shop in North Carolina.  On a trip to Grand Cayman in 2017 Sheila met fellow scuba enthusiast and underwater photographer Jeremy and her life changed once again!  After quitting her corporate job of almost 13 years she and Jeremy moved to Big Island in 2018 to pursue their passions together. Since arriving at Jack’s Diving Locker Sheila has become a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor and has taken on the challenge of co-Retail Manager!  On her weekends Sheila is often off shore diving and taking pictures of her favorite Nudibranch friends, exploring the island, and watching cooking shows.
