Participating in an ActionQuest program in 2012 inspired Elle to pursue her passion for diving and a determination to share her enthusiasm for the marine environment with others. During her gap year, she moved to Thailand and then Mauritius qualifying as a PADI Master Scuba Diver Instructor with 8 specialty instructor qualifications, and is now also qualified as an Emergency First Responder Instructor. Elle recently graduated from Cardiff University with a First Class BSc in International Business Management and since leaving has earned her RYA Yachtmaster Offshore qualification. This will be Elle’s 3rd summer teaching with AQ and she is excited to share her passion for diving and sailing with new people this summer. When not under the water, Elle is a keen netball player having captained the University team and has a love of dance having studied ballet to an advanced level since an early age.
