After training as a high school Drama and Theatre Studies teacher straight out of school and realising very quickly that it wasn’t the right career for me, I found myself on a path to discovering what I was really passionate about. It all started with summers spent working at a sleep-away summer camp in the gorgeous Sierra Mountains in California, which led to incredible road trips which awakened in me a desire to travel more.
After two years working in the travel industry, I was inspired to see more of the world, and decided to take a career break to travel. Over a six month period I visited South Africa, Vietnam, Thailand, Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, and the USA. It was the best thing I ever decided to do, living each day with the sunshine on my face, waking up to beautiful locations, and challenging myself constantly. I completely fell in love with the different people, the food, the diversity of stunning scenery, and the range of experiences I was having.
Since then, I have returned to Thailand a number of times to explore the different beaches and national parks, I have been fortunate enough to travel through the Malaysian countryside on the beautiful Eastern & Oriental Express, view orangutans in Borneo, I’ve snorkelled with turtles in Bali, and abseiled down cliffs in the Philippines.
I am so lucky that I am able to use my knowledge and experiences to help people encounter the world on luxury, bespoke holidays that will enrich their lives and provide them with memories that will last a lifetime.
