Above is a video I put together in which I talk all about how I got started and became a full-time professional mermaid.
My fishes call me courtney mermaid!
I quit my day job as an artist in the animation industry June of 2018 to become a full time mermaid...
It has been my mission since 2006 to create a vibrant, accessible, and fully authentic mermaid experience both in and out of the water. I wanted to BE a REAL mermaid.
The adventure began with a pair of flippers, some Spandex, and a dream. Once I knew it was possible to make a fabric mermaid tail, I was hooked (pun totally intended)!
Then came the painted tails and my first printed tails and before I knew it I had orders coming in from all over the world!
I had found my people and I had found my calling! ✨
Through my YouTube channel I share my own adventures and document my life as a professional mermaid.
I am an ambassador for FINIS (www.finisswim.com) and I also have my AIDA 1 freediving certification. I also belong to our local pod (community) of mermaids called Mermaids of BC.
Being a mermaid is about more than wearing a tail, it is an opportunity to see life from a different point of view, to appreciate the healing nature of the water world around us, and to find ourselves again!
I can help make your dreams come true! 💖
