About Jenny Lord

Jenny is from Gloucester, UK. She grew up there before moving around the South West teaching various different outdoor sports such as rock climbing, kayaking, caving and hiking. She moved to Dahab, Egypt to teach rock climbing but the diving bug bit her and she worked her way up through her instructor levels being introduced to technical diving on the way.

Although she initially had no interest in going deep, she now loves the peace she finds on very deep dives. She was inspired by Ahmed Gabr to dive deeper and attempt the women’s record. She also loves exploring new places, especially the canyons around her new home.

Jenny’s passion for diving shines through and she’s happiest when she’s in the water, whether it’s at 5m or 105m. She is also a keen underwater photographer and will often be found on her own watching the smallest creatures she can find waiting for that perfect shot.

Jenny has gained a first class reputation in the worldwide technical diving community as the ‘go to girl’ when an experienced support diver is required for dives well beyond the standard technical limits. She was the deepest female support diver on the Guinness world SCUBA depth record set in 2015 at 332.35m.

Although an obvious role model for women in diving, it is her skill set and experience and not the novelty of her gender that sets her apart from her peers. She has quickly become a fresh and enthusiastic public face of technical diving.

During the build up to her own record, Jenny will be supporting Leo Morales on his attempt to become the deepest disabled diver. She loves helping others achieve their goals, whether it’s going for a record or learning to scuba dive and introducing them to the world she loves so much.
