Hello, I am Samantha Morris, I sailed into my career in Maritime when I was just 21, working in the Cruise Ship industry before transiting into the Yachting industry in 2016. I have recently launched my own business as a Life Coach and NLP master practitioner, I focus on the readiness to change by facilitating crew to implement healthier habits into their lives to ensure that their Mental Health is their highest priority. I love traveling whilst experiencing new cultures, and yoga and I am currently learning to play the soprano saxophone.
Regarding my current role in the Superyacht Industry; I am a Relief Purser onboard MY Solandge and a member of the council of the PYA Crew Welfare group.
As a previous runner-up in 2020 and the winner of the Purser award is 2021, due to my dedication to crew welfare & mental health in maritime, it is an honour to be asked to return to the competition as a judge. With first-hand experience of the dedication it takes when accepting the nomination for the award, I feel I am in an excellent position to help another contender to receive the recognition that they truly deserve.
