I have had the great pleasure of being part of the travel industry for the last 22 years and it is wonderful to be able to assist and plan travel for my clients.
I have been in the industry for 20 years and have loved travel all my life. I love to research new destinations and pass on knowledge about places that I have been. I enjoy putting trips together for people, especially 'bucket list' holidays.
I began my career in travel working in Europe as a tour director. I never imagined 18 years later I would be able to pass on my knowledge and passion to other people and call it my job.
With many years in the travel industry, of which 20 have been with House of Travel, my passion for the industry is still thriving. I look forward to working with you to ensure your travel plans are all you are wanting.
I started my travel career with Calder & Lawson in late 2011, and I've never looked back. I am passionate about making your holiday experience fun and stress free; from dreaming, planning and booking, right until you're back home safe and sound.
With over 30 years in the Travel Industry I am continuously finding inspiration in my role, which keeps me super excited to be here!
Travel must be in my blood as I studied travel straight after school and after completing my studies I then started travelling. There is still so much to see and experience, I look forward to working with you to create your perfect dream holiday.
