I joined Travel Nation in 2012, having worked within the Travel Industry for the previous 13 years, in several different roles. I grew up on the Wirral, which is close to Liverpool and I enjoy anything to do with travel and travel photography.

Originally from

The Wirral, Merseyside.

Travel Industry experience

I worked in Thomas Cook retail for seven years, then P&O/Mott MacDonald Business travel for three years, followed by a year at Travel Mood and four years working for Travel Indochina in Sydney.

Business Class experience

Having worked within leisure and corporate travel for 13 years, I understand the importance of providing a high quality service when booking your flights. My experience and industry knowledge will ensure your every travel need is catered for. I'm able to choose the airlines that offer the best flight times andmost comfortable seats and beds for you, allowing you to arrive feeling fresh for that early morning meeting or break. I'm also able to advise you on which airlines offer a free chauffeured car to and from the airport and can give you the best advice in regarding which type of business class fare will suit your journey plans best.
