A short introduction to myself.

Prior to moving into the diving industry, I worked as an account manager working both in sales and people management, for one of the largest recruitment firms in London. Growing up was I was an equestrian riding instructor; my passion has always led me back to teaching and is where my true capabilities come out.

I am a highly driven instructor with an infectious passion for customer satisfaction for diving. I always strive to achieve my businesses and ethical goals alongside my own personal satisfaction and success in a team following standards. I always place myself in a position where I can grow both career-wise and personally. 

What makes me stand out from other instructors is that I am pro training neutral buoyancy. During my time teaching, I have become progressively eco-friendlier so that students are not interacting with the bottom contour during confined or open water dives. This has been proven time and time again to help reduce the stress and anxiety of nervous divers. I have always been the go-to instructor for nervous students and have a high record of success using this method and others. Safety has been paramount to me throughout my career and developing self-reliant divers that are confident when they leave and dive across the world. Not only that but for students to take away memories from their experience. My continuing education success rate is more than 70% including retail sales. Since the beginning of 2018 I have moved into team teaching professional divemaster trainees.
