I come from a travel industry background with both parents working for airlines, so I had plenty of opportunities to travel the world when I was growing up. My teacher once asked me what I wanted to be when I grow up and my response was, ‘I want to go and see that big rock In the middle of Australia’. I didn’t know what I wanted to be, but it was clear I had a passion for travel and being a part of other cultures.
My dreams came to life when I left school. I packed my bag and started my journey in 2007 and by 2009, I was in Australia, looking at the wonder that is Uluru. ‘Dreams can become a reality’ was a realisation I had while I was watching this magnificent rock change colours through sunrise to sunset with nothing but my camera, sleeping bag and a packet of two-minute noodles heating up next to my station wagon.
I travelled Australia extensively, went on to Thailand and headed back to set up a life for eight and a half years in Darwin, Australia. With my passion for the outdoors, wildlife and photography, this lifestyle was perfect for me. I went onto help realise other peoples' travel dreams by building personalised holidays all over the world. My travelling didn't stop, as my job sends me to unique destinations, helping me become an expert in destinations across the globe.
I have been working in the travel industry since 2012, and I joined Travel Nation in 2017. I’m looking forward to sharing my knowledge with you and helping your dream holiday become a reality.
West Sussex, UK.
I was travelling around Australia, in a car, picking up backpackers along the way to share costs.
I have been a travel agent since February 2012. Before this, I worked and lived abroad as a rep and worked for a small tour company in Australia.

I'm the queen of DI and enjoy renovating, sewing - or anything I can learn to challenge myself.
I don’t like flying - but the reward and experience the other end is priceless.
Travelling around Europe, selling coffee on the side of the road in my caravan.
Eye mask, camera, bum-bag, Paw Paw lip balm, insect repellent.
Vancouver – a chilled city, very clean, with wildlife on your doorstep.
I have had so many great travel experiences, it's honestly hard say. Each destination I go to I have a ‘wow’ moment appreciating culture, wildlife and food.
The Rockies, Canada. The Northern Territory, Australia and Bali, Indonesia.
The Villas Seminyak in Bali.
The hidden beauties of the western coast of Australia or Elephant Rocks, Denmark, Australia.
All of the stamps from Africa.
I must be at my gate early. I have a fear of missing a flight!
Crocodile. I tried the ‘road kill’ street food in Darwin at Mindil Markets - it’s a 'must-do'
Best – Caeser (a Clam juice Bloody Mary) in Canada. Worst – I am yet to try any insects!
Yes, I've worked as a holiday rep all over Europe and then as a travel agent in Darwin, Alice Springs and Perth, Australia. In New South Wales, I also worked as a cellar hand in the Yellow Tail Winery.
Darwin. The longer you live in Darwin, the more you become part of its history. Australia’s history is very young, and the Aboriginal people have these communities which have very different rules to the white Australians. At times it was hard to see the divide the country has, but understanding how they got to where they are and how every day they have teams trying to make a difference to close that gap for a closer and better future.
Vegas – pool party.
English tea bags!
