Emma was born in 1985 in the old Viking town of York, in the north of England. Born the middle sister of three beautiful girls, Emma´s organisational skills and single mindedness became apparent at a very young age. The phrase “Emma knows best” was often spoken by her mother on family trips and people soon realised this to be true!

 

 

After college Emma went into the catering industry and in no time found herself managing a very popular restaurant to much acclaim, further strengthening her leadership skills.
It was then that Cupido, the god of love, pulled back his bow and delivered a perfect shot to the heart! Emma met Jason, a kitesurfing instructor, on a blind date organised by a mutual friend. The blind date was at a German themed market in the north of England and after many steins her fate was sealed!

The two kindred spirits soon found themselves on a windswept adventure…

Emma joined the team after training in Safaga, Egypt, where Jason was stationed. Initially trained in administration, Emma´s eye for detail and immaculate work ethic shone through, and management was the natural progression.

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A whirlwind of traveling ensued with first the center in Djerba, Tunisia. Then onto our center in Dakhla, Morocco and on to Mauritius, running the center at the St Regis Resort in Le Morne. There the two have now been happy since 2013. Dogs and cats can not be missed in the household!

Emma is a kind soul, always thinking of others and her positive outlook continues to shine. This accompanied by a typically english sense of humour has served her well during many managerial challenges over the years.

They got engaged on Christmas Day 2012 in Brazil. On the 4.th of April they celebrated in the chapel of Emma´s old school in the Midlands, England. There were lots and lots of guests as they both have huge families! Their sisters were bridesmaids.

 

When not running the center, Emma can be found on the ski slopes indulging her passion for skiing and the occasional “vin chaud”, combined with a high level yoga practice.

 

Emma – we hope you keep looking for your “Zen” on the beautiful beaches of Mauritius – its there somewhere!
