As far as we're concerned this honor could not have happened soon enough.
For those who do not know her, Cristina is one of the most dedicated shark handlers on the planet and a long time shark conservationist as well.
Kudos to Cristina. If you're lucky enough to meet her or get to dive with her you'll soon come to understand why she will be inducted into The Women's Divers Hall of Fame along with other industry luminaries like Dr. Carole Baldwin, Dr. Ann H Kristovich, and Capt. Diann Karin Lynn.
Today was a good day for the industry.
