Natalia comes from the beautiful city of St Petersburg in Russia. After graduating from University with a degree in psychology, she worked as front office manager for a large hotel group. However, she eventually felt the need for adventure, travel, and a life by the sea.
The first stop on her journey was Egypt, as a hotel receptionist and after a short while found a job in a dive centre. After doing her open water course in 2009, she fell in love with diving and the diving lifestyle. After 4 years working in Egypt, she felt the travel bug again, and moved on to South East Asia. She has travelled extensively around Thailand: Khao Lak, Koh Lanta, Phuket, Phi Phi and has a wide breadth of knowledge if you need any travel hints or advice. She also travelled in Bali and Sri Lanka before settling down on her favourite island: Koh Tao!
Natalia came to Master Divers on the 1st April 2014 and has been a great asset to the dive operations team since her arrival. You may see Natalia behind the front desk when you check in, giving advice for all your diving needs or giving great advice on the best restaurants or snorkelling spots! You may also see her on the boat at some point, as she is looking forward to extending her diving qualifications in the future.
