Fiona’s professional career has evolved from Community Liaison to Marina Manager and most recently Operations & Marina Manager. Fiona has strived for and dedicated years to her continual development completing the Intermediate and Advanced Marina Management Courses as well as other Strata and Facilities Management Courses.
