Languages: English (Native), French (Good)

Isabelle is from a part of the UK steeped in maritime tradition and grew up spending much time on the water. Familiar with the Arctic cruise expedition industry, Isabelle has been working for the past four years on both traditional sailing boats and expedition vessels in Iceland, Tromsø , Svalbard and Greenland as well as working as an expedition leader on sailing boats in East Greenland.

Having developed an interest in marine biology while working as a whale watching guide for three years, Isabelle enjoys talking about the natural environment and loves to facilitate wildlife sightings for guests, whether it is their first time, or if they have seen polar landscapes and marine animals many times.

More recently, Isabelle has been expanding her knowledge of polar environments working as a guide and living on Svalbard. She loves teaching yoga and has studied to become a sailing boat captain.
