About Melissa

I have over 35 years of experience as a Travel Agent. I've managed a retail agency and for the past 26 years have been a personal Mobile Travel Consultant. Also during these same 26 years, I have held a part-time role as a Travel & Tourism Teacher at TAFE NSW which has allowed me to share my travel passion and experience teaching a large number of current and potential travel personnel.

As far back as 1990, I was awarded the prestigious title of ‘Australian Travel Consultant of the Year' from the travel industry oversight body Australian Institute of Travel & Tourism. Over my career, I have also won a number of other industry sales and excellence awards from Tourism Suppliers.

I have travelled the globe extensively and love sharing those experiences with my valued clients.

I am passionate about travel and assisting my clients to discover the world through planning their exciting holidays.
