Born in Austria, Corinna Davids has been no stranger to the scuba diving industry since an early age. After cultivating her skills as diving instructor in Turkey and Egypt, she joined Scuba Schools International (SSI) as Regional Manager for the Philippines and Support Manager for the SSI operations in Asia Pacific. As SSI Instructor Certifier and International Training Director for SSI Swim, water safety has always been one of her passions. In 2017 Corinna was invited to be a leading developer for SSI’s Mermaid program. Being the first of its kind, the SSI Mermaid program is breaking boundaries and creating a whole new industry with an exciting prospective for growth. The Mermaid program has given her a much needed and wanted platform to not only promote water safety, but also to raise awareness on environmental conservation issues.
