A bit about me:
I have a real passion for geography and completed a degree in the subject followed by a post graduate certificate in psychology from the University of Newcastle.
This, combined with a love for travel and previous experience in customer service and management roles, meant I was a natural fit for Discover the World Education when I joined in 2007.
In 2014, I also completed a part time MBA from the University of Bath.
What drew me to the travel industry?
I have been fortunate enough to travel regularly throughout my life.
Iceland is like a second home, which I visit several times a year. Organising geography trips for school groups to the place I know so well felt like second nature to me and I know my team share this enthusiasm.
What do I love most about my job?
Exploring new ideas and activities which help students and teachers to make the most of their trip. Working with a team of people who are highly passionate about travel and delivering a great service. Listening / reading stories from students and teachers when they return from their adventure.
When travelling you’ll find me:
Exploring, hiking, surfing and trying new food.
Most memorable travel moment:
A snowmobile ride across the Icelandic Myrdalsjokull icecap, to then stand 200 metres away from the erupting Eyjafjallajokull; one of the most exciting experiences of my life!
The excursion/ activity I most recommend:
Ice climbing on Solheimajokull
