A Bit About Me

I am the Operations Coordinator for Latin America and the Polar Regions here at Natural World Safaris. I studied Travel and Tourism at Brighton University and I have worked in the travel industry for eight years now. I started off as a USA Destination Specialist, then moved on to work as a Marketing Assistant and a Product Assistant for Europe, but now I am ready to take on the Polar Regions.

I have been travelling since I was 5 and I certainly have the travel bug – my list of places to visit just continues to grow. I have travelled extensively across North America but the holiday that stands out the most was my road trip around Alaska, which was by far the most thrilling place I have been to. Seeing glaciers, otters floating up the river minding their own business, the stunning landscape and watching a mother and baby caribou drinking from a river are things I will never forget.
