Ashley “Peach” Bueche
Catalina Sea Camp Dive Director
“Guided Discoveries is an amazing organization. There are incredible opportunities for growth available at every level, for our campers and for our staff. I believe we truly make a difference in the lives of people who come here. I love hearing from former campers about the impact the Sea Camp experience has had on them, how they still get starry-eyed 20 years later when recalling camp. Our dive programs give campers skills that they can use all over the world and I am very proud of the caliber of divers we produce.”
Ashley “Peach” Bueche began her career with Guided Discoveries in 2011 as a Marine Science Instructor at Fox Landing. Since then she has worked as an Assistant Program Director at Cherry Cove and Toyon Bay. A native of Massachusetts, Peach spent her summers on and in the ocean, either on her family’s boat or at the beach. However, it wasn’t until she moved to Catalina that she learned to scuba dive. After a brief taste of the Sea Camp dive program her first summer on the island, she did everything she could to be a part of Dive Staff the next year. She loves the peace and possibility that diving offers and sharing that experience with campers. Peach is committed to sharing the joy of scuba with campers while teaching them the best safety practices.
A graduate of Boston College, with degrees in Environmental Geoscience and Early Education, Peach is stoked to combine her degrees to teach kids about the ocean environment. She particularly loves inspiring children to take better care of our oceans in order to ensure the longevity of our natural world. She spends her free time paddle boarding, body surfing, and playing with puppies.
