My interest in China first began while studying business administration at the University of Vermont. I enrolled in an international business course in Qingdao in eastern China and after arriving back in the USA could not wait to return to explore the culture, cuisine, landscapes and rich history of China further.
After graduating from university I moved to Boston and pursued a career in hospitality, managing guest relations and creating tailor-made trips to Boston. My desire to travel coupled with a passion for providing excellent service, led me to Audley Travel.
During my time at Audley, I have had the opportunity to revisit China and I hope to continue inspiring others to explore the country's many wonders.
Outside of work I thoroughly enjoy skiing, running, discovering new restaurants with friends, and teaching spin classes part time at a local Boston gym.
I'll never forget when…
Visiting the Great Wall for the second time was a completely different experience to my first. I visited a remote section of the wall in Huanyaguan about a two and a half hour drive from Beijing, and got a totally different impression of this massive fortification. I visited in mid-October when the weather was cooler and there were fewer visitors and as the sun shone down on me as I hiked along the wall, I got sweeping views of the surrounding mountains and the seemingly endless snaking ribbon of the wall in the distance. I'll never forget it.
