I have worked at Travel Nation running the Accounts department since 2014. I moved to Brighton from London in 2012 and spent a couple of years commuting. I was very happy to find a job locally, and for a company that does something I love (travel!)
I was born in Shropshire but moved to Canada at a young age and spent most of my life there until moving back to the UK in 2009. I was meant to stay for a year, travel around Europe and spend time with my family here, but am still here years later! I'm an avid runner, love to travel and love house music. My husband is also passionate about running and travelling so we manage to combine the two. Running kit is always packed when we go on holiday!
I studied accounting part-time while working.
5 years as Finance Manager of a ski holiday company in London, 9 years as a Finance Manager in Toronto.
Emma has visited:
Run, go to the gym, volunteer at parkrun, race, eat, drink wine, read, cook and hang out with hubby and friends.
Perito Moreno Glacier, Argentina - it was simply amazing! Amazing to look at and to walk on (with a guide and crampons).
Running shoes, Kindle, sunglasses, sunscreen and my phone.
I generally just live out of my case, although it does tend to explode around the room.
Australia (always nice and warm), Toronto again (home), Chicago (nice city).
I went to Paris with my sister when I was 18. It was my first experience of mainland Europe or any real travel outside of England (where I visited) and Canada (where I lived).
Australia (Cairns was my favourite), Iceland and Argentina.
I hate flying - landing and take-off in particular.
The Galapagos Islands, an African safari and I want to go back to Chile and Peru
Vietnam. It was just completely different from anything I was used to. It was noisy, busy, smelly, hot, had completely different food, grim public toilets, crazy public transport and so much crazy traffic!
In the ghetto/slums of Miami. Downtown Detroit would be a close second.
I ran into someone I knew from Toronto riding around on a bicycle in Sydney once.
WMC – this is a house music “festival” in Miami that happens every year. I’ve been 4 times and you spend the week at your choice of day/night parties on boats/in various clubs. If I had to choose one party then maybe the Sasha & Digweed boat cruise was the absolute best.
The cats and my own bed.
