What year was your first season with Rockley?

My first season at Rockley was in 2017.

What did you do before joining Rockley?

I finished school and joined the Rockley College BTEC course. I've also worked at AFC Bournemouth.

What do you enjoy the most about working for Rockley?

I most enjoy seeing my team grow as instructors and also having children come back regularly, getting into watersports, and really growing in confidence week on week, year on year.  

What have you learnt during your time with Rockley, either personally or professionally?

I have learnt how to progress from being an instructor to running a centre and leading a team of instructors. It's great to now be in a position where I can encourage new and young instructors to upskill and be the best they can be.

What is your favourite Rockley memory?

My favourite memory was teaching my first windsurf course, watching the candidates progress and helping them pass the course.
