Nadia Ackerman

I was born in the beautiful Cape Town, South Africa. After working in the multifaceted Human Resources industry for more than 3 years, I decided it was time for a change and pursued a career in yachting. My love for the ocean, traveling, meeting new people and experiencing new cultures all laid the foundation of exploring my new career path.  I have been in the yachting industry since June 2019, almost 2 years, utilizing my professional interpersonal skills whilst always striving to provide the highest quality of service.
Prior to yachting I studied Entertainment Events Management and in my off time I enjoyed horseback riding, quad biking, swimming, reading and maintaining a fit lifestyle.  Since the age of 15, I developed a passion for ballroom dancing and my favorite dance is the salsa. I would say that I’m a fun person to be around and have a good sense of humour.  I was given the nickname “Coach” by my  crew, because I like to keep the positive energy high and encourage people to stay active and always give 100%…So drop and give me 20 burpees!
Just kidding ;).
Looking back on my life, I feel very blessed to be where I am today. : )
