My working career started over 25 years ago(in the dark ages!) in an independent leisure agency in Southport and from there I have gained experience in most of the disciplines in the industry, just to name a couple, I have worked for bespoke tailor-made tour operators, as an overseas holiday rep and have been extremely lucky to live in some beautiful locations, when returning back to the UK I then started the rounds again and worked for, Airlines, tour operators and a small stint out of the travel industry but I was lured back in and I finally found my niche in corporate travel, I have worked for several Travel Management companies, but I started working for Colletts in July 2015, I love that no one day is the same.

I love nothing better than enjoying a good film or a series on TV. I love walking and being out in the great outdoors, I also volunteer at a couple of animal charities where I dog walk.  I am known as the crazy cat lady, as I will always take in a stray and try rehoming once nursed back to health,  I do already have 4 cats!
