Originally I graduated with a European Business Degree, but have spent most of my time working in the scuba diving industry as a PADI Course Director and Emergency First Response Instructor Trainer.

Inspired by the involvement in first aid as part of the diving business I continued my education and qualified as a First Aid at Work Instructor Trainer. Over the last 10 years I have gained experience of teaching first aid lay person at both consumer and instructor level.

Before I settled down in the UK and decided to dedicate time to my husband, Ben, and my three young children I have travelled extensively in South and Central America where I worked for seven month as an Expedition Leader for Coral Cay Conservation in Honduras.

I now live in Hamstreet, Kent and with the children growing up I now  find more time to dedicate towards my passion as a teacher and an instructor.
