After college in 1999, I went travelling for a year to destinations such as South Africa, Zimbabwe, Australia, New Zealand and North America. After arriving back in Blighty and with the travelling bug truly ingrained, I joined an educational school travel market.
I worked as a tour co-ordinator and sales account manager for 6 years with a local competitor before enjoying a stint at American Express Centurion travel. In 2007, I joined the wonderful world of Travelbound and TUI as a sales account manager whilst also supporting the product team, creating the first of many brochures for Travelbound, specifically for Business Study students. I then went onto help launch the Universities and College’s department before working as Product Manager for Travelbound.
I now manage the Travelbound International department at the head office in Brighton, UK. We work to create product and inspiring educational tours specifically for International Schools around the world. The best part? Seeing the on tour photos so please send them to us!
Favourite city: I was going to say Hanoi but I can see my colleague Sarah Noonan stole this one off me! I also love Berlin; the feeling of space, the buzz of the nightlife and the feeling that history is quite literally seeping out of every corner.
About me: In recent years I have ran the Amsterdam Marathon, the London Marathon and made it through a Triathlon (just). There is nothing quite as comparable as the sense of relief and achievement when crossing those finishing lines!
