Having worked for ten years within high end retail, hospitality, events and management I decided in 2016 to take all my experience and skills and follow my brothers footsteps into the Superyacht industry.
Working in two of the worlds most prestigious stores, Harrods and Selfridges for high end brands and concessions taught me how to provide a 5 star plus service to high end UK and international clients. My ten years working within these industries unknowingly at the time provided me with the experience and skills to work as a Superyacht Stewardess which made my transition into the yachting industry an easy one.
Before leaving for Antibes I decided to train with City & Guilds in Floristry aswell as taking various short floristry courses in London to boost my skill set. I love being creative and anything to do with arts and crafts, I discovered a passion and a good eye for floral design which i didnt know I had, this has lead me to working onboard as a Florist aswell as a Stewardess.
I secured my first position as a junior stew within a month of arriving in Antibes and have worked my way up so far to Head of Housekeeping.
I like to keep fit and healthy, in my spare time I love to walk, practice Pilates and also Yoga, I am currently studying for my 200 hours Yoga Teacher Training Certificate to be able to teach onboard.
