Operations Specialist

I work with our Destination Specialists to create incredible trips and unforgettable memories. My background is in music events, being motivated by the creation of once in a lifetime experiences, something I use here with my love for travel and animals.

  • Favourite Travel Destination: Corfu, I have fond memories of swimming around an abandoned ship and exploring the old town.
  • Favourite Animal: Elephant, because of how intelligent and caring they are, forming deep social bonds.

If you could do just one NWS safari, which one would it be and why?

Very hard to choose just one, I’d either do the Birds, Bears and Belugas trip as I’ve always wanted to see the Northern Lights and arctic wildlife, or the Zebra Migration, Okavango Delta and Victoria Falls trip so I could see elephants, Victoria Falls and do some activities there!

What do you love most about Polar?

I love how remote and unique Polar trips are, the vast landscapes and spectacular scenery, with great wildlife-watching opportunities.

What is the best travel advice you have received?

Don't overstretch yourself with activities and a strict itinerary, instead allowing time to really explore the area, be spontaneous or to be truly present in the moment.
