All change please!
After nearly 13 years in academia teaching in some of the UK's top Universities I'm embracing my love for yachting and boats, and turning it into my new career.
Like many people Covid, lockdowns and in some cases losing friends and loved ones made them think long and hard about what is really important to them. For me it brought lots of change in my teaching career, shifting to 100% online teaching, and even less contact with students as I continued my move into academic management. The whole episode made me realise that although I still loved teaching, I lived for the weekend! I worked hard so that I could spend time on my yacht and doing RYA courses.
After many months I'm finally taking the big jump, out of the classroom and into a uniform and lifejacket full-time!
I hope to see you out on the water soon :)
