About me

Aaah the joys of travel, where would we be without these experiences that open our eyes to the wonders the world has to offer. The people, food, culture, music and everything else that makes travelling what it is. I was born in the tropical paradise that is Aberdeen, Scotland…..well maybe not tropical! I have been travelling around the globe for many years now and for the past 12 years I have had the privilege of being able to assist people get to the places they have always dreamed of. I enjoy immensely being able to ensure that my clients get a stress free opportunity to get what they want out of their travel experience whether it be for leisure or business. I have been a travel consultant in the manic world of a travel agency on a London High street (long hours but super travel benefits!) and also as the Manager of an agency in Brisbane for a couple of years. What remains the same however is the wonderful people I have dealt with, some have been my repeat clients for over 12 years now and all of the fantastic referrals I receive which for me is the ultimate compliment.

I am very proud of my achievement at being Personal Travel Manager of the Year for 2019……  yeeha!!!
