Rosie has managed to combine her passion for nature with a successful career in the health industry. A lifelong fascination with the ocean led her to study Biological Sciences with Honours in Marine Ecology. She then studied Physiotherapy and spent 15 years rehabilitating people from serious illnesses. During this time, she kept her passion for the ocean alive by working on weekends as a divemaster, organising diving trips and educating people about the marine environment. When Australia was ravaged by bushfires in 2020, she retrained as a wildlife carer, rehabilitating native animals.
In her spare time she enjoys diving and underwater photography – hobbies that have taken her all over the world. She considers her favourite destination to be Scotland, because of its puffins and seabird colonies, enchanting scenery, fascinating history and because it feels so remote despite still being in the UK.
Onboard, Rosie relishes helping expeditioners explore new places and connect with nature. Her caring nature shines through everything she does, making her a huge asset to your expedition. She encourages expeditioners to embrace the expertise onboard – go to lectures, get involved with citizen science. You’ll take home so much more knowledge, the more you involve yourself.
