Meet the team
I sit on the board of Traveltext and oversee all decisions involving strategy, growth and finding new business opportunities. Prior to being on the board of Traveltext, I practiced as a corporate lawyer in the UK dealing mostly in the area of private equity and M&A. I also sit on the board of the Online Travel Group Limited which is the holding company of Traveltext along with the other brands within the group.
I have been working in Travel for the last 6 years and thoroughly enjoy it. I look after the content side of the website, adding hotels and making sure they all look great! I co-ordinate the Content Team to ensure the website always has up to date information. I enjoy travelling and would like to get as many pins on the map as possible. When I am not working I enjoy spending time with my family, Go-Karting and I am a fitness fanatic.
Senior Travel Consultant
I have been in the Travel industry for 22 years now, I started working just weekends as cover for holidays but enjoyed it so much I stayed. There is nothing more I enjoy than getting my teeth into a tailor-made itinerary, be it around the world or just a few days in Europe. I have been to many lovely places over the years but at the moment Santorini is my favourite, I am sure that will change as the years go on.
A large part of my career has been spent working in the motorsport world; allowing me to embrace my passion for speed and to experience the sport from the ‘other side of the fence’ as both a writer and also in a variety of PR-based positions. Given the global nature of the sport, it was a job that involved an element of travel and when the time came to explore other avenues in my career, a move into the travel industry made perfect sense. My role within the company is to promote the Traveltext brand, and to work with the content team to showcase our holidays to a wider audience.
I started in the travel industry on a YTS course 27 years ago and over the years I have worked in various different areas such as customer service, ticketing, website content and sales. There is always something new to keep me on my toes and I still get a buzz out of talking to people, and finding the right holiday that suites their family and creates new happy holiday memories for them. In my free time I am cat woman, I have 4 cats of my own who I adore, I even have one with thumbs. I also volunteer for a local animal charity and also for one in Fuerteventura, offering foster care and can be found wandering the streets of Fleet and the local area, rescuing homeless or injured cats and kittens. I get to keep them at my home, rehabilitate them and find them their new forever homes.
I started in travel after completing a Travel & Tourism course and have now been working within the industry for just over a year. So far I have travelled to mostly Europe but my ambition is to travel the world bit by bit. I really enjoy finding that ideal holiday for my customers and when I’m not working I enjoy visiting attractions and shopping with my friends.
