Jennie Edwards

Global Marketing & Communications Manager
Jennie has worked within local and national Government for over seven years. Her work was based mostly on Event and Election Management and specifically the PR of Members of Parliament. Her strengths lie within Communications; so much so, she also did it outside of her day-job to help create major events in her home town of Herne Bay for fun. She decided it was time to take the plunge and combine her love of Water Sports with her day-job and join Submerged Sports in 2015. She is at her happiest when she is working towards likeminded goals to help local communities. Jennie has been recreational diver for over eleven years, and ventured into the Technical side in the last two. In her spare time you can find her either in the water, or on the beach!
