Tell me about your travel background…

Having studied Travel & Tourism at college for 2 years, I started my travel career at Lunn Poly when I was 19 and stayed there for seven years, then I had a short break from travel for a couple of years before starting at Travel Centre’s Reepham Road branch in 2008 - I have been here ever since!

Why do you love working in travel?

I love the product that I sell as every enquiry and client is different, making every booking unique. No day is ever the same!

Where have you travelled to…

Cambodia – Siem Reap, Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Tunisia, Turkey, Dominican Republic, Mexico, Paris, Disneyland Paris, Dublin, Spain - Benidorm, Costa Brava, Marbella, Balearics – Majorca, Ibiza, the Maldives, Mauritius, Hong Kong, Antigua, St Lucia, Barbados, Las Vegas, New York, Egypt, Cyprus – Ayia Napa, Protaras, lots of Greece; Santorini, Skiathos, Skopelos, Rhodes, Mykonos, Crete, Italy; Venice, Bologna, Rome, Dubai, and I’ve cruised around Menorca, St Tropez and Barcelona too.

Where are you off to next?

I am off to Cyprus in August with my partner and our friends. We have hired our own private villa close to Coral Bay. Whilst there we plan to spend some time sightseeing including visiting the Troodos Mountains and the Land of the Kings. We have also chartered our own private boat for the day with our very own captain and crew sailing to Akrotiri Cape Gata. The best thing about this holiday is that I am flying from Norwich Airport.

Travel wish list..

I’d love to visit Australia because it’s got such an aspirational appeal – I want to explore Melbourne, Sydney (to climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge) the Great Barrier Reef and I also want to stay at the Versace Hotel in Queensland – where I’m a Celebrity is filmed!

Favourite holiday destination and why?

I loved Las Vegas the most – it’s so vibrant and they have such great nightlife, shows and shopping. I flew over the Grand Canyon in a helicopter which was pretty amazing! The city has really great restaurants and the fountains at the Bellagio are incredible to watch.

Favourite travel memory and why?

Waking up in the Maldives, opening the curtains and seeing reef sharks swim by our room on our own bit of beach

Book with me because…

I am knowledgeable, friendly and always have a smile on my face

Never travel without…

My hair straighteners and an adapter plug to go with them!
