When did you start working in the travel industry?

Travel has always been my biggest passion. To me, exploring the world is one of the best way to learn about life and to grow as a person. Having worked in other fields for over a decade, I wanted to dedicate my working life to this passion. And I wanted to utilise what I learned from other professions to make a positive impact and difference to travel stories of others. Because of this reason I left my old job and backpacked in America for 5 months before I started to working in travel in August 2018.

What is your favourite thing about your job?

I love to inspire people to travel more and to make a positive impact to their travel experience.

What is your favourite Holiday Destination?

My favourite holiday is travelling solo on the islands of Hawai'i. Spending 3 months visiting all six islands allowed me to fully embrace Aloha spirit and learn about Hawaiian culture. The most memorable experience during that time was hiking 11 miles on the Kalalau trail and meeting people who lived off grid for 19 years. Witnessing their connection to nature was truly inspiring.

What has been your favourite holiday, which you have booked for a customer, that you would love to take yourself?

I have booked clients on Cunard Queen Mary 2 on which I really enjoyed my ship visits. I would love to cruise on it myself.
