I come from a background of hospitality, including working as cabin crew with British Midland flying from Heathrow . We moved down to the New Forest with our then young family in 1997 and I have worked with event companies in the Solent and spent the last 10 years working at Hotel TerraVina in the New Forest, being promoted from receptionist to General Manager during that time.
Like many of us, the last 8 months have been challenging, but it has also given me the chance to plan the next chapter. Our young family have grown and flown and for me this was a time to make dramatic changes. So in the middle of this epidemic I handed in my notice and looked for a new challenge. I had met Geoff during my time at TerraVina and I had been fortunate to briefly work with the WetWheels foundation. Serendipitously Wet Wheels Solent were also making changes and I am so happy that I will be joining them.
I was lucky to spend 4 years in Texas working as a Legal Secretary, where I learnt to waterski. When I moved to Heathrow I figured that a good way to meet people would be to join a waterski club. It was, as this was where I met Steve. As a family we all ski at a club in Ringwood, which also has a disabled section, I have seen first hand the joy that freedom on the water can bring I am looking forward to spreading the word about Wetwheels so that as many people as possible can enjoy a world I love being part of.
