The Team

Judy Riggien

Travel Office Manager
Judy enjoys the creative and analytical challenge that goes with managing the travel office. She is always keen to explore new destinations and keep divers coming back for more exciting diving adventures.

Until recently Judy was involved in retail management overseeing 45 staff members. She decided to leave behind the demanding corporate retail industry so that she can spend more time with her husband and two young boys.

Judy’s knowledge and management skills are an asset to the travel office and it is great to have her as part of our specialised team. Judy has completed her Scuba Diving Course and joined us to Madagascar and Red Sea.

Wendy Simms

Tour Operator Administrator
Wendy recently relocated to Port Elizabeth from Johannesburg to start her new adventure with Pro Dive. Wendy started out in the creative industry of advertising and marketing as an art director.

She then decided to make a change and follow one of her passions for great food and became operations manager for a catering company. Wendy has a passion for learning and in line with this she studies part time and has almost completed her bachelor’s degree.

Now that she is with Pro Dive, she is using this same passion for broadening her abilities and interests, and is preparing to do her Open Water Diving Course. Wendy loves to travel and has ventured to various destinations around the globe.

Jill Hall

Tour Operator Administrator

Jill caught the travel bug straight after school.  She traveled and worked both nationally and internationally in Europe, most African countries and the USA in the hospitality industry working her way up to management. One of her highlights was working in the Yosemite National Park allowing her to partake in various rock climbing activities for which the park is famous for.

After working in the industry for over 10 years, Jill decided to get married in Vegas and settle down to have kids.  She moved back to South Africa and has been working in a law firm for the past 6 years.  She missed the travel vibe and jumped at the opportunity to get involved with Pro Dive.  Her attention to detail and passion for travel are essential attributes to our office.

She has a passion for baking and cooking and enjoys all culinary delights

Jill is friendly and always smiling. She enjoys the challenges that come with getting the best value and service for her clients.
