Jules grew up in the UK but has travelled all over the world and now lives in Mallorca with her husband and daughter.

Having spent many years working in hospitality in the UK for exclusive hotels & restaurants, Jules decided to go travelling around the world looking for adventure. Aged 22 she to travel to Asia and fell in love with the continent, especially Thailand. Whilst visiting a friend in Bangkok an opportunity to work in the corporate world presented itself where Jules worked for eight years spending time also in Singapore and Malaysia. It was in Singapore and Phuket that Jules was first introduced to the yachting world during the famous Kings Cup Regatta where she was invited to become race crew. This addictive sport saw Jules sail most weekends and she went on to race in the South East Asian Regatta circuit sailing in the Raja Muda (where she sailed alongside an all-girls crew), Royal Langkawi and three Kings Cups in total. She fell in love with the ocean and the lifestyle so when another fantastic opportunity of a lifetime presented itself to her, she jumped at the chance! Packing her life into a small bag, Jules become full time crew on an 80ft Swan in Singapore as stewardess/deckhand/cook. Fifteen years later Jules has sailed all over the world working on prestigious yachts ranging from 50 meters to 70 meters as Chief stewardess/Purser.

During her yachting career she has always admired Luxury Yacht Group for their integrity, commitment and friendly consultants. Jules hoped that one day she would find a balance of still being involved in the yachting industry but having roots and is delighted that her experienced and skills can be used in recruitment. Every day is different, exciting, and purposeful. She loves talking to crew and building great relationships.

Jules is based out of Palma.
