A bit about me...

I have been in the travel industry for as long as I can remember. I tried to escape but not for long. Customer service and logistics are my favourite parts and generally providing a great itinerary that will allow teachers to relax too. It was a ski trip to the Spanish Pyrenees that got me hooked on travel. After leaving school, I studied Tourism and Business Studies which led me to work overseas in many different countries including France, Austria, Italy, Switzerland, Tunisia and New Zealand.

What do you love most about your job?

Creating itineraries, talking to teachers and working with a great team.

How do you like to spend your time when you are travelling?

Skiing in winter and by the pool in summer.

What is your most memorable travel moment?

Skiing under the Matterhorn Mountain in Cervinia Italy first thing in the morning, no-one around, no tracks, just perfect snow and clouds forming a carpet below me!

Which excursion or activity do you most recommend?

A glacier walk is a unique and once in a lifetime experience.

What are your top tips for organising the best school trip possible?

The most important thing is understanding what the teacher and the group need to make their trip a success which means plenty of open communication.
