Glenda Meade

Owner / IDC Staff Instructor

Glenda was born and raised in Newfoundland, Canada. As a teenager, she spent much of her time learning about boats, learning to maneuver the tricky waters of the North Atlantic and gaining a tremendous amount of insight on the ocean.

Before moving to Cozumel, she lived in Toronto, Ontario where she enjoyed a successful career in Accounting which took her to numerous exotic locations throughout the world. Her last position with an international company as Director of Audit, took her on several business trips to Nicaragua. It was during that last trip, a traumatic kidnapping experience changed her life forever. After years of trying to recover and with absolutely no possibility of returning to her former position, she was forced to make career changes to move forward.

In the fall of 2013, while reassessing her future, she took a trip to the beautiful island of Cozumel. Deep in the tranquil waters, she gained newfound courage and strength to pursue a new exhilarating career in the diving industry.

Eager to share the immense beauty and tranquility of the island, she decided to open Maple Leaf Scuba in the spring of 2016.
