I have worked in travel since 1975, working in Sussex, London and Kent, and joined Baldwins Travel as the Retail Manager in 2001. I am still passionate about travelling and enjoy leading a successful experienced travel team in helping our clients to plan authentic experiences in far-flung places, or a well deserved beach and flop holiday in the sunshine.
I have worked in travel all of my working life and I really do think that I have the best job. After starting my career with a multiple travel agent, I relocated to Kent and started working for Baldwins Travel in January 2016. I have been lucky enough to work in both our Sevenoaks and Tunbridge Wells branch and love the diversity in my career that has brought me. Since working here, I have been very lucky to have travelled to Mauritius and South Africa and stayed in some of the most beautiful hotels.
Working for Baldwins Travel was my first job after leaving school.
I had a break when my children were little but have been back now for 29 years. Doesn’t time fly when you are enjoying yourself!
Since applying for a position within a London travel agency at the age of 17, I have remained passionate about all things travel related and the industry as a whole. I have travelled extensively in Europe. Turkey and Italy are two of my favourite destinations and I’ve enjoyed many holidays in both countries. I am a real foodie and love to find the culinary specialities in each country I visit, preferring to eat with the locals whenever possible.
With over 40 years in the trade under my belt I have travelled extensively throughout America and Canada but also to Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Seychelles & Mauritius, Hong Kong, Singapore, Brazil & Argentina, Borneo, Malaysia and Uganda. I have cruised 15 times with 6 different lines including Alaska, Hawaii, Panama Canal, Caribbean, The St Lawrence Seaway in Canada, the Mediterranean and the Baltic.
I returned to Baldwins in 1991 after I had previously worked for them for two years between 1983 and 1985. I have always loved to travel, ever since my first holiday to Spain in the early 70’s. I cannot imagine working in any other industry, as travel is in my blood.
I joined Baldwins Travel in 2019, and have been in travel on an off for over 20 years. My passion is selling holidays and travel, and I’ve lived in New York, Italy and Trinidad & Tobago for a year or so at a time, so I know these destinations well. I have been to most places in the world and this year I will be going to Peru, South America, which is on my bucket list as I have sent so many people there in the past. I love Italy and Italian food and have even driven to most parts of the country as well.
I’m a confident, enthusiastic person and I have had a passion for travel from an early age thanks to the many family holidays I was fortunate to have.
In 2015, I was based at NJY camps in Pennsylvania working with children with special educational needs for Camp America. During my time there I had the opportunity to explore various destinations on the East Coast. After studying Travel and Tourism and travelling myself, I decided to do what I love for a career and joined Baldwins Travel in 2018.
