I decided to be a travel agent after getting home from my OE. I lived in Scotland & travelled around Europe – on my own & on a coach. It was amazing & I knew I wanted to help others have their own adventures & experiences. Now I get to do this everyday.

Having spend the last 25 yrs in the Travel Industry I can safely say "I love my job". Getting to put together dream holidays is very rewarding and it's great to see so many more Kiwis getting out to see this amazing world of ours...
I have always followed my favourite quote, "life is too short to wait" Why wait to see the world, why not pack a bag and head on an adventure, there is too much to see in this world. So, come in and see me, let me help you create your next adventure!
My passion for travel started when I was 5. We moved houses a lot, and call me crazy but I like packing and getting excited about meeting new people. I take pride at organizing family holidays, honeymoons, wrestling trips to Russia, cruising and more.
