Vicki Mudd, BS.

Vicki is the donor of the DSTII submarine, created by her long term friend and mentor, Dan Scott Taylor II.  Vicki participated in much of the design and construction phase of the DSTII from its beginning and inherited it after Mr. Taylorís untimely passing.  The submarine was constructed by Dan Scott Taylor as a follow up mission to his 1969 home built submarine assault on Loch Ness to find Nessie.  

Vicki Leonard Mudd's interest in the Loch Ness Monster began as a child.  Her grandfather filled her head full of fantastic tales of monsters and legends.  She discovered the tale of the yellow submarine and Dan Taylor Jr. through a class project at age 11.  Now, 20 years later, she is on board with the newest expedition involving her beloved submarine.  Ms. Leonard attended Georgia Institute of Technology to study Civil Engineering, and holds a biology degree from Kennesaw State University.  She worked as a commercial diver, and has 15 years diving experience.  Vicki now attends gaduate school at Mercer University.
