Meet The Team
I joined Baldwins Travel in 1989 having previously worked in a travel agent in Greece taking in incoming tour reservations and as a tour guide. My passion for travel has taken me on many adventures and I am constantly planning my next one. Other than travel my other interests include hiking, running, cycling, skiing and paddle boarding.
Austria is one of my favourite ski destinations, with the great après ski and lovely mountain restaurants, however I have also skied in France, Andorra, Canada and USA.
I have travelled extensively, gaining expertise in numerous long-haul destinations including Thailand, Vietnam, Argentina, South Africa, Canada, Sri Lanka, USA, Antigua, and most recently Costa Rica and New Zealand. The wildlife in Costa Rica was out of this world, and New Zealand is the perfect destination for beautiful scenery, hiking and adrenaline sports!
Having family in Germany and have spent a great deal of time out there especially in the Cologne/Bonn region, and have experienced the Christmas markets and cruising on the River Rhine. As well as long haul destinations I have travelled extensively in Europe visiting lots of cities and summer holiday destinations. This year I am visiting Split, Rhodes and Berlin as well as USA later on in the year.
I’ve lived in the Caribbean and on the East Coast USA, and before joining Baldwins in 2018 I worked in London in incoming student travel for over 15 years. Traveling from an early age, I grew up with a passion for travel and have been lucky enough to have visited many places including Asia, Australia, USA, Caribbean, India, Africa and many spots in Europe.
As well as long haul adventures, I love nothing more than packing a carry-on bag and heading off on a city break for a few days, my latest was a trip to Madrid – a lot of tapas and a lot of fun! I thoroughly enjoyed organising worldwide gap years for both my children and am thrilled to have joined Baldwins Tonbridge. My other big passions are running and yoga; I had an amazing time in India training and qualifying as a yoga teacher in 2015.
I joined Baldwins Travel Group in March 2015. Originally from South Wales, I left the UK in 2001 to work overseas and had the pleasure of living and working in many countries over about ten years: Tenerife, Menorca, Lanzarote, The Gambia, Finnish Lapland with Santa himself, Costa Del Sol, Costa Blanca including Denia, Moraira, Javea and Calpe. I’ve also worked with people of various ages ranging from the youth market and mature couples to families with children. I also love cruising, having sailed myself just a few times, cruising is something I am keen to do a lot more of. I have completed many training courses, ship visits and have been a Cruise Line Industry Association Master for many years. Apart from my overseas life, I’ve also spent time as a holidaymaker experiencing unforgettable destinations including Corfu, Crete, Gran Canaria, Portugal, Majorca, Egypt, Ibiza, Mexico and the Dominican Republic. For the past 12 years I have spent many holidays with my partner and children now aged 17 and 20. They love active family holidays and enjoy anything that has amazing waterslides and roller coasters. Now the children are older, we have been able to leave them at home and experience amazing destination further afield. Las Vegas, and more recently Dubai, Bangkok and Koh Samui, one of the best holidays I have ever had.
I am thrilled to have joined Baldwins Travel in 2022 after a break in my travel career. I have always had a passion for all things travel and I am excited to be back in the industry!
I have had many travel experiences in the USA and Canada and have lived in Newfoundland, Canada as well as Israel. I have had some wonderful trips to Disney World, the Greek Islands, Spain, the Canaries, as well as visiting Hong Kong and Malaysia. I enjoy active family holidays in the sun, but equally enjoy jetting off for a short city break, Prague and New York being some of my favourites. Destinations I would love to explore in the future: Italy, Japan, and India.
I joined Baldwins in 2022, after completing a 3-year college course studying Travel and Tourism as I wanted to pursue a career within the travel industry. I also lived in Spain for the summer and fell in love with travelling and seeing more of the world on my own.
I love to socialise with my friends and trying new experiences outside of my comfort zone. If I had to pick my favourite destinations, I would pick Ibiza and any of the Caribbean Islands.
