A Short History of Me: 


For as long as I can remember, I have always been fascinated with with the incredible planet we live on. It boggles my mind as to how our little rock has such a breathtaking variety of geography, culture and wildlife. So I have spent my life continuing to try and see as much of it as possible.

After studying Psychology and Animal Behaviour and university, I saved up and whisked myself off around the globe for 18 months, taking in six of the seven continents (Antarctica remains my white whale). It was then when I fell in love with South America's captivating charms. I have remained besotted ever since. It is therefore no surprise that I was drawn to a career in the travel industry!

After six years with a high street travel agent, I got a little disheartened with how booking people's travels became less about the experience and more about the bottom line. Accordingly, I was delighted to join Nick's team at the South America Specialists - where the emphasis is on creating perfectly tailored experiences for our clients.
