Kelly

I have worked in Travel for over 16 years. I started off as an apprentice with Lunn Poly straight after leaving school. I then continued working for large high street travel agents in leisure travel. In 2012 I joined the Colletts Team, mainly to deal with all the holidays for our lovely corporate clients, however more recently, I have taken a bit of a step in to the “dark side“ and have started to help the team out with the corporate side of things. Although leisure travel is my first real love, I am quite enjoying the different challenges that come with corporate travel. Moving to Colletts was the best thing I ever did, as we are a relatively small team it means we can develop great relationships with our clients and suppliers.

When not at work, I love eating out , spending time with my hubby and friends. I am also a keen runner ( well maybe not keen but I give it a go ), my husband and I run for a local athletics club.

Favourite day out

Definitely the day I did the Great North Run in Newcastle, it was such an amazing achievement for me ..My First Half Marathon and a fabulous day out
