Personal and Group Travel Team Leader

The fun and friendly group of people that make up Globetrotter as a whole create a great working environment. This along with my day to day interaction with clients ensures every day offers a variety of new and exciting opportunities.

I have worked in the travel industry for more than 25 years, the last five with Globetrotter in the Lifestyle Department. I have had a range of roles and responsibilities, including working in retail and wholesale travel as well as at airports around WA. From these experiences I am able to use my knowledge and expertise to ensure our Lifestyle clients fulfil their holiday dreams.

I can’t say that I have any one favourite destination, I just love travelling and experiencing as many new places as possible. Thailand is an amazing country so diverse with beautiful people, shopping, culture and relaxation all on offer.  My visit to South America recently has been a highlight with the magnificent spectacle of Iguassu Falls a natural wonder not to be missed.

I am passionate about my family, having the right work/life balance and trying to find some time just for myself. With three teenage children life is hectic at times, so it is important to always have fun and I try to do this with family and friends.

Allow enough time to see and experience a place and don’t try to do too much in a short space of time.

Globetrotter is a great place to work as it offers an environment that is both positive and rewarding, with strong family values.

I have enjoyed working in the travel industry for over 20 years, initially in the UK and now here in Australia with Globetrotter since 2005. I work in the Lifestyle Department because I love creating wonderful travel experiences for my clients.

I am a beach lover and I love anywhere that can offer me azure seas and white sandy beaches. The Caribbean islands, the Maldives and the Seychelles tick those boxes for me. They all offer a great opportunity to really unwind and relax; to me that’s the perfect place to go.

My passion is fitness. It’s the ultimate way to re-energise and re-focus and it’s also fun! Fitness also inspires me to become a stronger person both physically and mentally.

When leaving hotels for the day in non-English-speaking countries, ask the concierge to give you a card with directions back to the hotel in the local language.

There are lots of things to love about working at Globetrotter. It is great to work with a great group of people in a fun and friendly environment.

My travel industry career is still very new. I spent 15 years working as a Registered Nurse in several different areas, but the majority of my time was spent in Neonatal Intensive Care. I loved nursing, but was tired of shift work and decided to pursue my passion of travel with a new career in the travel industry. I completed my travel studies mid 2015, and after completing some work experience at Globetrotter, was lucky enough to be offered a role.

It’s really hard to pick a favourite. I absolutely love New York and all of the amazing experiences it has to offer. For a relaxing, stress-free holiday I think it’s really hard to go past Bali. Bali really has so much to offer whether you’re holidaying with your family, your partner or a group of friends. The best holiday I’ve had in the last couple of years though, would have to have been six weeks camping in the Kimberley with my husband and three girls.

My passions are my family and friends, followed closely by cooking and travel. I love nothing more than having friends over for a relaxed meal and drinks.

Don’t worry about wasting valuable space in your suitcase with exercise gear, because as good as your intentions may be, relaxation always wins.

Although I have not worked here long, I am looking forward to working in a dynamic and vibrant environment with a team of people who are passionate about travel and have travelled all over the world.

I started my career over 30 years ago in Adelaide and put the brakes on whilst I had children. For the last ten years I have been working at another local agency in Nedlands.

Canada in particular Banff, and the Canadian Rockies. Having been fortunate enough to live in Calgary for 3 years, The Rocky Mountains never cease to amaze me! The scenery from snow topped mountains, lakes, wildlife and wonderful outdoor activities that are easily accessible.

My four daughters and husband, friends, travel of course, excellent food and wine. I am also very passionate about all sport and in particular AFL.

Always allow enough time to explore each destination. You also need to have a carefree attitude, to allow yourself to be spontaneous.

I love working in a team environment. Everyone is always happy to assist and share their knowledge. The office has a great vibe and culture I enjoy coming to work every day. It is very rewarding assisting clients with their  arrangements and being  a part of their travel experience.

I have been servicing the travelling public for over 25 years. I started with Thomas Cook in Toronto Canada, since then I have worked in New Zealand and for the last 10 years in Perth in a retail capacity. I bring my knowledge,  enthusiasm , inquisitiveness, attention to detail and puzzle solving skills to the Lifestyle Team.

There are so many wonderful destinations that I have experienced, so it is hard to choose. India- with its vibrant colours, noisy streets, amazing food and history with inspirational people. The Caribbean- as every island is a little bit different. Puerto Rico if my favourite island for its beautiful beaches, forts, rain forest and a variety of rums.  Sailing on bare boat charters in the British Virgin Islands, Thailand, French Polynesia and Tonga is definitely at the top of the list.

I am passionate about  traveling with my family and friends. There is nothing better than sharing experiences in different cities with the people you love. Making new memories always inspires me.

Always pack one change of clothes in your carry-on for the unfortunate event that your luggage goes in a different direction than you!
