I have always loved being in and around water, as a young child I loved collecting pennies from the bottom of the pool that my Dad used to throw in.
After being spotted aged 8 by a diving coach throwing myself into the pool in a somersault at the local leisure center I was asked to join the local diving team. This soon led to County and National teams where I won National medals and a couple of National titles.
At the age of 16 it was time to choose between my two loves - diving and musical theatre, I chose the latter and went on to train at London Studio Centre and perform in many shows.
After my daughter was born I knew I wanted her to have the same confidence, respect and love of the water that I have. A friend of mine recommended Puddle Ducks and I have not looked back!
I instantly fell in love with the whole concept and I knew I had to be a part of it. I count myself so lucky to be able to do a job that I love, find so rewarding and teaches an invaluable life skill.
Oh and it is now my daughter that loves surface diving for pennies (well, rings!) from the bottom of the pool. The only difference is that she is only aged three and a half!
I'll look forward to seeing you soon x
