Extreme Diver Interview – Ashyln Parmley

When I was a kid my favorite tv show was “Home Improvement.” Later after it went off air or maybe just before they did an interview with Patricia Richardson who played Jill Taylor about her experiences on the tv show. I thought it was interesting when she said that she started the tv show just after she’d given birth to her twins so she was a bit heavier than what she intended on being. After she lost the weight, when people would meet her they would always comment that they thought she was heavier than what she was. Okay so how does all of this come into today’s blogger interview you might be asking… Well at the Safari Hunt I saw Ashlyn Parmley sitting there and walked up and asked if I could interview her for the blog. One thing led to another and she said she remembered me as being the pregnant gal walking around last Memorial Weekend when she was doing her open water check-out dives. Yup, that was me. Wonder how many people will remember me as that gal… I’m okay with that because my beautiful baby girl just turned a year old. Anyway on to today’s interview with Ashlyn Parmley.
