Travel is my passion and it’s my core – cut me in half and you will find a world map
I began selling the dream at Lunn Poly, now rebranded as TUI. I spent a fantastic 14 years specialising in short and long-haul destinations, then followed a new path to join Virgin Holidays as a Travel Advisor Expert and Manager. I had a successful ten-year career winning various awards and being a Brand Ambassador for Virgin at the Attitude Awards.
Travel is my passion and it’s my core. The sheer joy of talking about holidays everyday is the most fulfilling part of my career and to be part of creating your perfect holiday experience is my absolute pleasure.
My travel specialism
From driving the coast of Malibu, California and exploring Florida to feeling the vibrant buzz of New York that I love so much (11 times!), I’ve been really lucky to be able to visit all of the major cities of USA.
I’m drawn to adventure, and taking my family on a road trip in Vancouver, Canada to experience the northern lights, exceptional service in the hotels and restaurants and taste the superb flavours is a personal highlight of my travel experience.
My most memorable travel experience
My holidays are always filled with adventure, and the breathtaking hike I took up Hollywood Hills at sunset will always be one of my top experiences. The views of the rolling hills under glorious sunshine from the top makes the walk so worth it, it was an amazing experience!
In the opposite vein, I love being in the magical heart of winter. When trees are clad in snow, seeing the green glow of the northern lights and the comforting atmosphere of friendly locals made visiting both Canada and Lapland, Finland so incredible.
My favourite destination: Los Angeles
I love exploring the beautiful and dramatic coastline around Santa Monica, surfing in Malibu, experiencing the buzz of Beverly Hills and indulging in amazing restaurants. I’m more hiking boots than heels, so trekking around the Hollywood Hills was an experience I will always remember.
My favourite hotel: Burj Al Arab Jumeirah
I spent my honeymoon at the Burj Al Arab, a hotel which redefines the meaning of service, hospitality, and luxury. All the lavish suites are fit for Royalty – myself and my husband pinched ourselves a few times! From the private beach and infinity pool to the world class spa and Al Muntaha restaurant with amazing views, stay here for the ultimate indulgence.
Favourite tour: Luxury Vancouver Highlights
The luxury Vancouver tour takes you to Stanley Park, the historic Gastown and Granville Market. We enjoyed a myriad of activities such as bear viewing, hiking, and paddle boarding, then extended our itinerary and drove to Seattle to experience the buzz of the city. The options for our tours are endless and we can tailor make any to suit your preferences.
Service commitment from you:
I am truly committed to offering the most personal service possible to my clients, and with 25 years of experience and knowledge – I know how to get it right by now!
I personally want my clients to have the best time and have that real holiday feeling. Luxury looks different to everyone, whether my client is travelling as a family looking for adventure or a couple seeking a romantic getaway, and I want to get to learn so I can tailor everything to make the perfect holiday - and there is nothing I wouldn’t do to make that happen.
