Leslie O'Neill made her first ocean dive in 1982 while on a recreational visit to the Cayman Islands. Instantly fascinated by the beauty and sanctity of the ocean, O’Neill spent the next two years earning her accreditation as a P.A.D.I. instructor and planning customized scuba excursions for individuals, groups and corporate audiences.
In 1987, a strong entrepreneurial spirit led O’Neill to the creation of Scuba-Explorers, where she offers training, certification and worldwide dive adventures. Leslie enjoys sharing her passion for diving with others.
Those who have attended her program describe Leslie O’Neill as an amazing teacher who consistently strives to empower students by imparting her many years of training and ocean experience. Her utmost concern for new and refreshing divers is knowledge of the sport and safe implementation.
Through Scuba-Explorers, O’Neill continues to plan and lead more than six customized dives to the Caribbean each year. Information for joining a trip is available on her website.
When not at the bottom of a swimming pool blowing bubble rings, you might find O’Neill leading bi-weekly social media round table discussions. Leslie formed IMSMKC.com in March, 2009. It is through this group of business professionals that O’Neill satisfies her own passion for learning, while at the same time encouraging others to grow their business by cooperatively sharing ideas, advice and resources among one another.
Other titles held by O’Neill include commercial pilot, professional model, dance instructor and creative arts performer. She also enjoys golfing, skiing and spending time with her family
