At a very young age, my parents brought me a snorkel while on holiday of the south coast of England and since then I have been fascinated with what lies beneath the waves. Over 30 years later, it is still my most favorite thing to do!
What about MEDASSET?
My role within the MEDASSET team is to provide technical and scientific support to my colleagues managing programmes. The opportunity to work within such a distinguished organisation, which has been instrumental in the protection of Sea Turtles across the Mediterranean, is truly a privilege.
