Tell me about your travel background

I've worked in travel for over 20 years, starting in 1999 at Going Places and then joining Premier Travel in February 2015.

Why do you love working in travel?

It's an exciting product to sell! And it's always lovely to hear about my customers' experiences when they return.

Where have you travelled to

Menorca, Mallorca, Cyprus, Tenerife, Fuerteventura, Lanzarote, Portugal, Disneyland Paris (seven times!), Italy (I've been along the Amalfi coast and stayed in Sorrento, visited Capri. Rome, Milan, Lake Maggiore and Lake Como too) Israel (including Tel Aviv, the Dead Sea and Eilat) Mexico, St Lucia, Antigua, the Dominican Republic, Seychelles and Malaysia. I didn't fly till l was 16 years old so my childhood holidays memories are of Devon and Cornwall, which is a very beautiful part of the world!

Where are you off to next and why?

I'm thinking about Barbados! I'd love to go, everyone says how lovely it is and I'd like to experience it for myself. The last few holidays I've been on have been really relaxing short haul holidays, so l would like to go a bit further afield.

Travel wish list

New York – I want to experience all the wonderful things (especially the shopping!) and would like to see a show on Broadway. I've sent so many of my customers there but I'm yet to experience it for myself, so would love to go. Also l would just love to take my children to Disney World in Florida!

Favourite holiday destination and why?

Probably the Amalfi Coast – the views are just breath-taking, and it's quite different to my usual beach holidays. A trip to Capri is definitely a must – it's just so glamourous and beautiful and if you go right to the top of Capri on a cable car, the views over Vesuvius are just stunning. It's really romantic and it has fantastic ice creams too!

Favourite travel memory and why?

There’s quite a few! But it’s got to be Borneo… it was an amazing adventure filled with the best memories… snorkelling, zip wiring across islands, high speed boats, the food (and cocktails) the luxury of Shangri-La Hotels and of course the amazing day trip to Sandakan to the Sepilok Orangutan Sanctuary. With a wealth of natural riches, it has to be my favourite. Once you’ve finished exploring Borneo’s beaches are heavenly, relaxing and a perfect end to an adventure.

Top Travel Tip?

Never travel without your camera… capturing as much as possible on film means you'll always have beautiful travel memories to look back on.

Book with me because

I'm very honest – I wouldn't ever tell anyone to go somewhere I didn't think was right for them. I like to think I'm also friendly and approachable too.

Never travel without

Common sense!
