Outside of work, Nova nurtures a lifelong passion for scuba diving. She became an instructor 13 years ago and reached a level where she can now teach instructors in training. She still teaches off and on when time permits though is less enthusiastic these days about jumping into freezing cold flooded UK quarries. She has dived all over the world, on shipwrecks and submarines, with sharks and whales, making the most of precious time that GPS, 4G and wifi cannot disrupt!
