Meet The Team
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. In April 2006 I joined Baldwins Travel and became Branch Manager in 2011. I still love to travel, see new cultures and try new foods. I’ve always got plenty of places I want to “tick off my list”. Outside of travelling, I enjoy cooking and gardening – I love growing my own fruit and veg and sharing it with my colleagues. There are only so many courgettes and runner beans a person can eat!
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. I’ve also been lucky enough to have had specialised training on cruising, and have visited many cruise ships locally which has inspired my passion for cruise. I have a real love for travel and enjoy creating amazing holidays for all my clients.
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. I have cruised down the Panama Canal, stayed on Copacabana Beach in Rio, seen the sights in Thailand, met Mickey in Florida and relaxed on many a Mediterranean Beach. I have skied every year since 2004 in Switzerland, Austria and France, enjoying all the pistes from blue to black and of course, the Après Ski!
I joined Baldwins Travel in September 2018 after taking time off to raise my twins. Aside from travelling, I’m a keen runner and love to cook and experiment with different tastes and cultures.
My Baldwins Travel journey began in January 2022. I have always loved traveling whether it was trips away with the family, or city break stays with friends. I have visited many European destinations, but have also travelled further afield to locations such as China and Iran, with a forthcoming holiday to Mexico this year. My goal is to progress my career in the travel industry and to experience the many wonders of the world.
