About Me

I love travel and I love what I do! Having spent over 12-yrs as a Travel Consultant with House of Travel, I get real enjoyment from creating holidays. Whether it’s creating that bucket list holiday, visiting family and friends, a family getaway, wedding, business trip or a much needed beach break, no matter how big or small, I’m here to help! Tours, Cruises, tailor-made holidays, group, a do it yourself holiday, I can do it all! Let’s work together to turn your dreams into reality! It’s not often that one package fits all so I will listen to you, your needs and wish-lists and together we will work out the travel plans that work for you.

Having recently become a mum, working as a broker allows me to continue doing what I love as well as having time with my family. I have travelled extensively through the USA and travelled in a number of different ways; Ocean Cruising, River Cruising, Touring, Self-drive and “winging it”.

A friendly, professional service with care and attention to detail with every booking. I pride myself on repeat and referral business and prioritise building trusting relationships with my clients ensuring that we work together on not only one, but all travel plans. My goal is for YOU to enjoy and get excited about the planning and booking process whilst providing continued support in thelead up to your travel and whilst you are away and then of course, hearing all about your wonderful experiences upon your return! I really am here to make your travel experience personable, memorable and most importantly – fun and easy!
