Rachel Benway- IDC Staff Instructor

My first dive was a Discover Scuba dive in March of 2017 while on vacation in Jamaica. I liked it so much that I went again the next day! That summer I earned my open water scuba diver certification with Blue Crew Divers at Dutch Springs. Each year since I've continued to expand my diving education with specialties and travel. I became an Open Water Scuba Instructor in August of 2020 and love introducing new divers to the beauty and fun underwater. I also help train new instructors in my role as IDC Staff Instructor.

I love to travel and attempt to dive everywhere I go, even on work trips.  One of my favorite things to do is explore wrecks.  I find it fascinating to explore things that seemingly don't belong and to see the natural world reclaiming it in many ways.  Above water, I work as a Director of Product Management for a healthcare software company in Philadelphia.  I also enjoy cooking and baking and have been experimenting with baking bread.
