I’ve worked in the travel industry for more than 15 years after a brief time at university. I started my travel career in retail before moving into corporate travel at QANTAS. I started at Phil Hoffmann Travel in the business travel team in May 2010.
A few years at the Queensland Travel Centre gave me a great opportunity to explore this great state extensively which was a lot of fun. Having not really travelled at all until I started as a travel consultant, it was something I just knew I would love, and of course after a few trips and booking holidays every day it became addictive. In 2009 I was fortunate to volunteer at a small day care centre in Fish Hoek south of Cape Town followed by a Kumuka safari, and it was my absolute favourite travel experience. With a complete language barrier, the only way of really communicating with these toddlers was smiles and affection – both of which they absolutely craved and lapped up for the 2 weeks I was with them.
Now with 2 littlies of my own I am kept busy both at home and at work supporting the business travel team.
- We’ve all heard it before but it remains my number one travel tip – pack light, less is more…and NEVER put shampoo and condition in amongst your clothes without a plastic bag around them. Absolute recipe for disaster as a novice traveller.
