For as long as I can remember travel has been a huge passion of mine. I completed a Travel and Tourism Degree at the Waikato Polytech which soon saw me working at the Quality Hotel in Hamilton where I saved as much as I could to kick start my dream of travelling the world. At the age of 20, I headed off to London where I quickly secured a job working as a Travel Agent with Carlson Wagonlit, which enabled me to explore the UK and Europe.

My absolute favourite destination is Italy - the food and wine, the hills and vineyards and the history... and I have to mention the warm friendly Italians...  with its vibrant cities and small quaint villages, it has something for everyone.  With over 30 countries and many memories later I made my way back home to NZ. I then worked at House of Travel for 4 years in Auckland.

Since then I married and have raised a family of 3.
