About me

I became a Personal Travel Manager over 12 years ago and use the knowledge & experience I gained with over 24 years in the industry to help plan the perfect trip for each individual or group’s needs. My 20+ years experience include previously working for some fabulous companies including Insight Vacations, Trafalgar Tours, Scenic & Evergreen Tours and Bill Peach Journeys. My previous roles have included designing group journeys, presenting for companies or acting as a guest speaker for clubs speaking generally on travel destinations & experiences, and escorting journeys worldwide including within Australia, Canada, European River Cruising, Tuscany, Greece, Vietnam, Cambodia & New Zealand. These name just a few of the wonderful destinations I have taken groups to, which have included various forms of transport including private aircraft, coaches and cruising. I have arranged journeys for my “Ladies Travel Club”, Golfing Groups, Quilting Groups to USA, Probus Groups, milestone birthday trips, destination weddings and many corporate events.
Whatever your travel needs are, from the moment you plan your journey to the moment you return home, I am just a phone call away.

Where I've Travelled

No matter where I go around the world, I’ll always return to:

RURAL EXPERIENCE: Tuscany – From the rolling hills with the Chianti vines, the delicious food, the culture, the cobble stoned streets, to the Tuscan sunsets. This is one of my favourite destinations.

CITY EXPERIENCE: New York City – My magical day included a visit to Tiffany & Co on 5th Ave in the morning, followed by a horse & carriage ride through Central Park, lunch at the Boathouse, a visit to the Guggenheim Museum and a cocktail at the Plaza Hotel. Yes, I have a very patient husband! The next day was just as fun with a bike ride along the piers, pizza in Brooklyn & the evening lights of Times Square.

ACTION HOLIDAY: Whistler Blackcomb Mountain – My first ski trip overseas. Peak to Creek was one of the best moments skiing and a snowmobile ride to a frozen lake & waterfall topped of the journey.
& Steamboat Springs, Colorado – My last ski trip overseas. From the champagne powder runs, feeding a grouse from the lift, meeting genuine cowboys, quaint shops in town with local art, to soaking in a natural hot spring at the end of the day. Steamboat offered everything and more. These are just some experiences I have had and brought back to share ideas with my clients for their next journey.

CLOSE TO HOME: I reside in the beautiful NSW Snowy Mountains & have a strong passion for bringing people to our region. There is so much to see & do here all throughout the year. I am happy to share my local insider tips & recommendations with you for your next journey.
