My passion for travel started from my first family holiday abroad, aged 10, with two weeks in Mallorca. The language, the food, the smells, it all seemed so exotic! And the guaranteed sunshine helped. I was hooked. So, I went off to university and studied Travel and Tourism and in 1998 I started work in the travel Industry.
I have been with the Baldwins Travel “family” since 2002, and I’ve worked in our Sevenoaks and Tonbridge branches. Prior to this, I worked at Thomas Cook for three years, where I gained my qualification in travel and tourism and customer services.
After a two-year travel and tourism course, I joined Maidstone’s Baldwins Travel in 2011. During the past few years, I have been fortunate enough to expand my knowledge by visiting many countries including India, Jamaica, Croatia, America, China, Italy and New Zealand – to name a few!
I joined the Baldwins Travel ‘family’ in October 2016 as a Travel Consultant in the Maidstone Branch, and I have over 20 years’ experience in various roles within the Travel Industry. Working in travel has enabled me to visit to many places from climbing Mount Sinai in Egypt to taking in the sights of many other wonders of the world. I recently visited Chitzen Itzu in Mexico, but have many more places on my bucket list to visit.
I have had several years within the industry, and I joined Baldwins Travel in October 2017. I found my passion for travel when I was in education, going on to complete an apprenticeship. Since then I have continued to progress my career in the travel industry, and have enjoyed travelling to many European destinations including France, Spain, Portugal, Italy and Greece. I’m looking forward to extending my knowledge of destinations further afield in the future.
My life in travel began in 1988 after studying Travel & Tourism at college for two years. I spent my first years working in an Independent Agency specialising in South Africa, and was lucky enough to visit many areas and even spent my birthday on Table Mountain! I also worked as Cabin Crew and saw many European cities, albeit briefly.
