Looking to change career path and as I love life at sea and fell in love with yachting 3 years ago, I am looking for a job in the industry.
My previous experience is in business management, customer service, working in international teams, serving international clients while running my own small IT service company with clients in San Francisco, Berlin, London, etc.
Hospitality experience helping in scuba diving centres around Europe in my twenties. I always made sure everyone is having a good time. Our clients loved me.
As I am 37 years old and have been working for a good amount of years, I have grown up to be responsible, thoughtful, organised about my work and social, kind respectful and caring for others around me be them my team or clients/guests.
Very much can do attitude and proactive, I am a constant learner — owning a business requires it and I love it :)).
I am looking for the right environment and team where I can be a good asset and would be able to learn and grow. I am also willing to share more responsibilities and take a partnering role.
Sailing experience: RYA Competent crew course; 2000 nm, 5 months non stop liveaboard experience throughout the Med with only the skipper and me onboard. We covered offshore multi day passages as well as coastal ones. I was responsible for half the watch time onboard and have been very comfortable doing solo night watches. I love the night sky and sea.
I love freediving and scuba diving and am very experienced in both, can lead snorkelling tours, teach people some skills. As a rescue scuba diver, I am one course away from Divemaster and would take the course if that is an activity offered onboard and lead dives for clients or teach scuba diving.
Know my way around the galley, can cook and willing to develop these skills even further for the right job.
I am also good with social media, photography and videography above and below water.
