Meet The Team
My love of travel started at the tender age of 11. I remember standing in a travel agent with my parents looking at the glossy brochures of far-away places, thinking how I would love to be talking to people about these all day.
After leaving school, I worked in business travel for 12 years before starting my nearly 20-year career with Kuoni. There I found a real passion for Africa, and pre-covid, I was a Product Manager for Africa and the Indian Ocean.
I joined Baldwins Travel in 2016 after spending 12 years at Kuoni. Travel has always been a huge passion of mine, spending summer family holidays abroad and skiing in Europe. I took gap years teaching in Tanzania and working in New Zealand for a year. Working in travel has taken me to some fantastic destinations including Australia, Cook Islands, Maldives, Mauritius, South Africa and Namibia.
During my educational years, I studied a lot of ancient history and language, I have always been drawn to culture and heritage. Through this education, I have learned a lot about the historical significance of certain civilisations. With this, I have a large wide array of knowledge on the Mediterranean countries as well as their history. In addition, I have completed self-research on other areas of the world, therefore, being able to suggest different holiday types for specific traveller requests.
I joined Baldwins Travel in November of 2021 after a management career in the restaurant and hospitality sector. I studied travel in higher education graduating with distinction level work. Although I am still young I feel I have learned a lot from my educational days. I have a vast knowledge of different ancient regions of the world due to institutionally taught and self-taught knowledge from literature as well as trips to those locations.
I have studied travel and tourism for three years alongside cabin crew for two years at college.
I have always had a strong interest in working abroad and hope it’s something I can achieve. However, the college course has helped me find an interest in other travel departments, from tour operators to airports.
Intending to work in the travel industry, I joined Baldwins travel in early 2022.
