Bridget K. Thomas RN, 2001
Bridget was certified in 1982. In 1990, she left her career in nursing education to pursue the development of the International Society of Aquatic Medicine. ISAM offers diving related medical seminars whereby physicians and staff can be brought up-to-date on the latest technology and sciences of undersea exploration while also exploring the conditions found in the Caribbean, South Pacific, and Middle East. Under Bridget’s direction, the membership has more than tripled and the number of medical conferences increased from one to five per year.
