Jen is the manager of Tofo Scuba since January 2017, and has since become a PADI OWSI, EFR and Nitrox instructor to join the teaching team at Tofo Scuba. After completing countless marathons and triathlons back in the UK, she can now be seen running circles around Tofo Scuba keeping everyone in line. She is also researching the current status of stingray species here in Tofo - so if you see any stingrays on your dives, you will be sure to have an ear-full of stingray facts thrown at you from Jen!
