Katy is from Sutton-in-Craven, a small village in northern England. She became fascinated with sharks ever since she saw a photo of one in a marine life book that belonged to her grandma. She completed her PADI Divemaster in Australia when she was 19, before starting her Bachelor’s degree in Marine Vertebrate Zoology at Bangor University, in which she graduated with a First Class Honours.
