My travel career is my passion. I love helping people to explore the world. Helping them to combine a total package of travel experiences.
I joined MTA - Mobile Travel Agents (MTA) after almost 20 years in the travel industry because they are a progressive company with fabulous training and support.
Keeping up to date with the latest in airfares and products is imperative in this ever-changing industry and MTA has wonderful tools and support in these areas.
I am also available to my clients 24/7 which is a bonus for my corporate clients who are often in different time zones around the world.
I began my travel career in 1999 at Traveland Helensvale. I worked hard and learnt from the best in the industry.
In 2002 I moved to Hope Island Travel which was a Travelscene American Express franchise. A new level of client base was opened up to me and also included organising school group travel and many high-end clients.
I won a Qantas business class incentive to New York City which is still a highlight of my travel experiences and also travelling to Spain to launch the largest ship in the world Harmony of Seas as a guest of Royal Caribbean International Cruises.
Personal travel has also seen me travel to various destinations in the USA, Canada, Spain, France, Italy, Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, Switzerland UK and Ireland, Japan, Singapore, Bali, Fiji, Vanuatu, Hawaii, Thailand, Hong Kong, New Caledonia, New Zealand and I have also been on many cruises.
A special place for me is Jasper in Canada. Jasper holds fond memories for me of spectacular scenery and also being trapped in my room with 2 suspicious elks right outside our hotel door at Jasper Park Lodge. Such a pretty place with quaint little shops and restaurants.
I love the saying "Without a Travel Agent you're on your own"! It's so true and came to light with the collapse of Air Australia. I was able to notify my clients of the collapse at 6:00 am in the morning and had them rebooked on other airlines within the hour (all before they even knew of the events unfolding).
In 2016 I was awarded CLIA (Cruise Lines International Association) Mobile Travel Agent of the Year for Australia for 2015, a very treasured award.
I have recently completed my CLIA Cruise Masters and now can boast being a CLIA Master Accredited Cruise Consultant, the highest level of achievement of the Cruise Lines International Association training program.
On my “bucket list” is cruising Croatia and the Mediterranean and a visit to Scandinavia.
I look forward to helping you plan your next travel experience.
