She worked on busy charter boats in the Mediterranean, predominantly based out of the French Riviera, and learnt to speak French to be able to manage concierge services and provisioning, as well as gaining vast local knowledge of the area. She dealt with a wide range of guests with varying requirements and learnt to adapt service to the needs of the individual while maintaining yachting standards.
