A bit about me...

After studying travel and tourism at school I knew that it was the only industry I would want to work for! After graduating, I worked for a local tour operator for four years. During my time there I developed a passion for responsible and educational travel which is what attracted me to Discover the World Education. I am excited to work with the rest of the product team, especially to develop our approach to sustainable travel!

What drew you to the travel industry?

I love travelling, and to be able to help others experience such amazing places is so rewarding.

DTWE Destination I most want to visit:

China because it seems to me to be a country of great diversity, the contrast between the very modern urban centres and the rural areas is fascinating.

When travelling you’ll find me:

On the beach getting tanned or doing anything adventurous!

Most memorable travel moment:

Diving in the Red Sea in Egypt, climbing Konoko Falls and Dunn’s River Falls in Jamaica.

Must-pack item:

Phone (with internet) – I love being able to share with others all the fascinating places that I am experiencing at the time.
