Lucy heads up the social media and marketing side of things for Swim Secure. She enjoys the work because she gets to see how open water swimming is enjoyed by so many people around the world, and finds interacting with such a diverse group of swimmers up-lifting.
When not spreading the word on the socials Lucy enjoys cycling, walking, skiing, scuba diving, travelling and socialising. However, this is easier said than done when a lot of time is spent ferrying her two children around to their numerous sports fixtures.
Interesting Lucy Fact: Lucy can complete the After Eight Challenge in ten seconds.
Priscilla is our Warehouse Manager and loves that her job is so active, with no two hours – let alone two days – the same.

Interesting Priscilla Fact: The word “Priscilled” has passed into office vocabulary meaning something that was once a mess but has been tidied beyond all recognition.
