I have been lucky enough to travel to some of the world's most interesting and breathtaking places.
Travel has been a major passion of mine since first setting off on a year long overseas adventure to Canada at the age of 23. Since then my travels have also taken me to Egypt, Dubai, Cuba, Peru, Argentina, Mexico, USA, Italy, Spain, Tahiti, NZ and Fiji.
I have also travelled to some diverse and wonderful places in Australia, including the Red Centre, Kakadu, and outback Queensland. There is still so much left on my bucket list!
Each day is a blessing to come to work with such an enthusiastic and knowledgeable team here at Escape Travel Glendale, where our goal and passion is to help our clients realise their travel dreams. To see our customers experiencing the world and creating life-long memories is the most rewarding job I could ask for!
Travel is something I’ve been passionate about all my life… and I have spent the last 40 years introducing clients to the wonders of the world. I was first hooked when I set off on a 3 month London to Kathmandu overland tour and have been travelling ever since. Highlights have included a wonderful Scenic European River Cruise, walking the Cinque Terre in Italy, scaling the heights of Macchu Picchu, exploring South Africa and the fantastic Victoria Falls. Not forgetting Vietnam & Cambodia, China & Russia as well NZ, as well as all of Australia’s treasures. Most recently visited Eastern Europe with Scenic Tours, which included Berlin and Poland, China & Hong Kong, Penang, and a week in the amazing Kerala region of India. I look forward to helping you plan the holiday of your dreams as if it were my own holiday … with an eye to making sure you get the best value for your dollar!
Fourteen years ago I was on my lunch break at work and walked into a Travel Agency and enquired about flights to London. A split decision and I booked a ticket there and then and left three months later to doing a working holiday in the UK for the next eighteen months. That trip I caught the “travel bug” and haven’t looked back. Since then I have travelled to France, Italy, Spain, Greece, Netherlands, Belgium, Ireland, USA (including Alaska), Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore, Malaysia, Tahiti, Mauritius, Fiji, Vanuatu, New Caledonia, Indonesia and New Zealand. Helping others plan and book their own dream holiday is why I love my job.
Having a passion for travel since a child, it was only natural that I would have a career in travel. No day is ever the same with a new destination and experience for every client each and every day. I'm constantly learning and have been fortunate enough to travel to Fiji, Vanuatu, New Zealand, Germany, France, Italy, Switzerland, Austria, Belgium, Netherlands, Monaco, London, Dubai, LA, Hawaii, Mexico and Vancouver; and looking forward to using my own travel background and knowledge to create memories and unique experiences for my customers.
I started in travel in 1999 in Queensland when I was living in Weipa. Planning holidays for people inspired me to get out and travel. I have lived in places as far as Dubai, Mount Isa, Weipa and now Newcastle and have travelled for leisure to Canada, the USA, Fiji, Vanuatu, Malaysia, Dubai and Oman.
Since having children I can be found wandering around Australia visiting all of our amazing sites including Ayers Rock, The Great Ocean Road, Perth, Fremantle, Rottnest Island, Cairns, Port Douglas and snorkeling on the Great Barrier Reef.
I know first hand what it takes to plan a holiday with children and would be happy to help you plan your next family holiday and ensure you get great value for money.
I first caught the travel bug back in 2011 when I went on my first overseas trip to Thailand. Ever since then all I dream about is travelling and planning where I am going to next!
To gain more travel experience I moved to England, worked for two years to work and travelled through Europe as much as possible. I found this experience invaluable and so lucky to have had the opportunity to do this while still young. So far I have travelled (mostly independently) to 28 countries, and cruised with Contiki and G Adventures.
My favorite country (so far!) is Iceland, my fondest travel memory is getting engaged on a gondola in Venice and next on my bucket list is trekking to Machu Picchu!
My passion in life is to share with my clients my passion for travel and to deliver them the BEST holiday possible.
I love learning about new destinations and always welcome a challenge. I will go above and beyond your expectations and would love the opportunity to share this amazing travel journey with you!
