We welcome Katie to the Rockley Team

We welcome the lovely Katie to Rockley who joined us in the summer and is now working alongside the college team. We discover her love of the sea and her desire to swim with sharks!

Before Rockley she was travelling around Australia and Southeast Asia. Having worked for a watersports company in Bondi, and being forced to cut her travels short due to Covid, she discovered working by the beach at Rockley Point the next best thing! 

Which 3 people (in any time in history or present day) would you invite round for dinner?

David Attenborough - the most incredible man on the planet! (Don’t tell my partner I said that!). I just adore his passion and care for planet earth. 
Kate Middleton- I’d love to have a Sunday roast and wine with her. I just feel like we’d get on well. 
Ocean Ramsey- I’m so fascinated by her. I feel like she’d have the most incredible stories to tell. 

Your perfect day if time, money or travel was not an issue?

I’d be in Hawaii, I’d wake up to an early morning sunrise with a smoothie bowl (my fave) for breakfast. I would then go surfing and scuba diving during the day followed by a sunset sail in the evening...and then endless pina coladas…!

What has been your biggest indulgence in the past 6 months?

A new wetsuit and paddleboard, I’m very fulfilled!

What has been the best book you’ve read and why?

What you should know about sharks, by Ocean Ramsey. My dream is to one day swim with sharks and free dive, without the cage! And she provides so much knowledge on shark behaviour and her own experiences, I found it super helpful, seeing as I do spend more time under the water that on it- I like to be prepared!

Finish the sentence….before I die……..

I want to see the rest of the world, that I haven’t yet ticked off my never-ending bucket list…

What super power would you want to possess if you could?

To breath under water

3 things you would take to a desert island

Food, water, sun cream
